Ten cyclonic and three anticyclonic Gulf Stream rings were identified using 700 bathythermographs and STDs between 22 June and 9 July 1975. Two cyclonic rings were tracked for 7 and 11 months, and an anticyclonic ring was tracked for 10 months. An average of five cyclonic and anticyclonic rings form each year with lives of two and one year respectively. Author
