Variability of Southern Ocean jets near topography

The interaction of jets with topography in the Southern Ocean is investigated using 19 years of altimetry data. In particular, the ''jet jumping'' mode of variability, by which two or more jets passing close to the same topographic feature show strongly anticorrelated strengthening and weakening, is studied. Three regional case studies are described-the Southeast Indian Ridge south of Tasmania, the Macquarie Ridge south of New Zealand, and the Pacific-Antarctic Rise-where the jet jumping...[Show more]
