See 05.07.11: Animations of SST gradient, FSLE and stratification for WHOTS site (Nov. 1, 2008-Mar. 31, 2010) for details of the FSLE calculation. The FSLE plots were made with plot_FSLE_snapshot.py in RESEARCH/PROJECTS/MARINE_BIOLOGY/SUBMESOSCALE_PROCESSES/FSLE/analysis/SSH_AVISO. Note that the figures from P. Miller can be found in an email folder titled “Turtle’s Project”.
