SOFAR Float Observations of an Intermediate-Depth Eastern Boundary Current and A second float, launched near the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, meandered Initial and final position data for floats 17 and Float 17 was still heard by the autonomous listening stations at the time they were recovered (May ). first year of the experiment in order to maximise the probability of a high data return. MAFF will deploy a cluster of 6 floats probably at m and will add to this deployment single floats at 6 monthly intervals to form a "plume" experiment. MAFF will rely on lOS for initial data processing. Summary of past and planned intergroup contacts. using a sequence of six SST images and altimetry data and compared these features with float data. They found that the IR image of the meddies during the winter/spring is clearer than other seasons when coastal upwelling is relaxed. We hereby report a new method to study the Medi-terranean outflow and meddies (O&M) by analysis of. Mediterranean outflow, however, is lower than observed, mainly because of its high temperature (more than 2°C higher than in reality). The lower density of the outflow and the model’s inadequate representation of the entrainment mixing in the outflow region cause the Mediterranean .

using data from CS in years –86, gave annual signals of Sv and Sv amplitude with maximum absolute values in September and January for the inflow and outflow, respectively. The length of the series from which these numbers were deduced is less than a year and, as authors indicate, their estimates have great uncertainty.

The results discussed here suggest that the outflow of Mediterranean water has a small but noticeable effect on the circulation and climate of the North Atlantic, leading to a warming of the northern North Atlantic by a few tenths of a degree and an enhancement of the outflow of North Atlantic Deep Water by 1 . the Price and Yang () box model used as boundary condition for the Mediterranean outflow. A year realistic experiment forced by NCEP interannual atmospheric fields () is performed to test the ability of the model to reproduce the observed variability.
