Abstract:

Strong westward flow in the North Equatorial Current NEC encounters tall, steep, submarine topography and islands. During the Flow Encountering Abrupt Topography FLEAT DRI, investigators will determineWhether appreciable energymomentum is lost from the large-scale NEC flow to smaller scales and through which processesWhat limits numerical modelsstate estimates from making accurate statisticaldeterministic predictions at 10 km resolution around submarine topography and islands How can we improve them
