Abstract:

This study examines, in detail, the effect of the passage of a meso-scale feature through an area normally under the influence of the Antilles Current. The study area lies approximately 40 km northeast of the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas. The analyses examine, in particular, changes in structure of the vertical displacements of the semi-diurnal tidal component of the internal wave field. The report also includes a description of the methodology used to compute the vertical displacements. Author
