Abstract:

This dataset is based on archives of the high resolution (1/100deg) Florida Straits, South Florida and Keys Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (FKeyS-HYCOM) from 2004 to 2016; Sea Surface Temperature (SST), Sea Surface Salinity (SSS), Sea Surface Height (SSH), Mixed Layer Depth (MLD), Currents (U&V), Kinetic Energy (KE), Florida Current position (latitude of the 20C isotherm at 150m along 83W), weekly mean transports. Those included fields on particular time were used in the paper: Kourafalou, V., Androulidakis, Y., Le Hénaff, M., & Kang, H. (2017). The Dynamics of Cuba Anticyclones (CubANs) and Interaction With the Loop Current/Florida Current System. Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 122(10), 7897–7923. doi:10.1002/2017jc012928

Purpose:

To identify mesoscale anticyclonic eddies along the northern Cuban Coast (CubANs) and to study the dynamics of CubAN eddies and their interaction with the LC/FC system.

Theme Keywords:

anticyclonic mesoscale eddies, variability of the Loop Current/Florida Current system, Loop Current, Florida Current, wind-induced upwelling, cyclonic eddies
