Features of the circulation in the Mozambique Basin in 1981
Abstract:Several cruises of the RV Meiring Naudé in 1981 were aimed at deriving the background or average circulation in the Mozambique Basin. This information would be of direct benefit to determine the advection of isolated eddies in this area. The results reflected the existence of a strong (up to 67 × 106 m3s−1) but variable current in the vicinity of the Mozambique Ridge. An eddy associated with this current and situated east of the Ridge emerged as a significant feature of the survey. No evidence could be found of a consistent background flow in the Basin.

- The Journal of Marine Research publishes peer-reviewed research articles covering a broad array of topics in physical, biological and chemical oceanography. Articles that deal with processes, as well as those that report significant observations, are welcome. In the area of biology, studies involving coupling between ecological and physical processes are preferred over those that report systematics. Authors benefit from thorough reviews of their manuscripts, where an attempt is made to maximize clarity. The time between submission and publication is kept to a minimum; there is no page charge.
