XBT Analysis - Antarctic Circumpolar Current velocity at 145°E
The Antarctic Circumpolar Current
Location of IX28, which is used to compute the Antarctic Circumpolar Current velocity at 145°E, overlaid on the (left) Mean Dynamic Topography, and (right) Mean Geostrophic Velocity from the MDT_CNES-CLS09 climatology.
Mean Antarctic Circumpolar Current velocity (145°E)
Baroclinic geostrophic velocity accross IX28 based on preliminary analysis of the XBT data.
