Kinetic Energy of Eddy-Like Features From Sea Surface Altimetry

Martínez Moreno, Josué; Hogg, Andy; Kiss, Andrew; Constantinou, Navid; Morrison, Adele


The mesoscale eddy field plays a key role in the mixing and transport of physical and biological properties and redistribution of energy in the ocean. Eddy kinetic energy is commonly defined as the kinetic energy of the time‐varying component of the velocity field. However, this definition contains all processes that vary in time, including coherent mesoscale eddies, jets, waves, and large‐scale motions. The focus of this paper is on the eddy kinetic energy contained in coherent mesoscale eddies....[Show more]
