Abstract:

Using profiling current meter PCM data obtained by Duing 1973 in the Florida Straits during project Synops 71, part of the expression for the kinetic energy exchange rate was evaluated. The principal results were that the significant kinetic energy exchange takes place in the upper 250 meters, and that it constitutes a restructuring of mean flow kinetic energy rather than a net local exchange with the fluctuations.
