Abstract:

We describe the current-meter data collected from 4 moorings 11 current meters in the vicinity of the Blake-Bahama Outer Ridge. These 12-month records document both mean eddy activity of the deep western boundary current of the North Atlantic, near 30 N. In addition, the temperature records show large-scale, westward propagating eddies in which the ocean above the thermocline actively affects the abyssal jet. Author
