The East Australian Current

Location of PX34, which is used to compute the East Australian Current velocity at 34°S, overlaid on the (left) Mean Dynamic Topography, and (right) Mean Geostrophic Velocity from the MDT_CNES-CLS09 climatology.


Mean East Australian Current velocity (34°S)

Baroclinic geostrophic velocity accross PX34 based on preliminary analysis of the XBT data.
