03.30.11: Animation of FSLE and stratification at WHOTS siteΒΆ

I present an animation of the FSLE around the WHOTS site and the corresponding time series of Brunt-Vaisala frequency (BVF) for each of the two WHOTS deployement:

  1. WHOTS-1
  2. WHOTS-2

The white dot in the middle of the upper panel indicates the location of the WHTOS site for which the stratification is shown in the lower panel. We see that there is no obvious relationship between large anomalies of BVF within the mixed layer and surrouding filaments. Constrast this with the same animation for the regional HYCOM simulation.


I used anim_WHOTS_BVF_FSLE.m in RESEARCH/PROJECTS/MARINE_BIOLOGY/SUBMESOSCALE_PROCESSES/WHOTS/analysis/anim_WHOTS_BVF_FSLE on the central disk.
