On the Relation Between the Surface Temperatures of the Gulf of Mexico and its Circulation
Abstract:The circulation of the Gulf of Mexico is compared to the distribution of sea-surface temperatures. For temperature gradients greater than 0.02°C/km, a correlation exists between surface-temperature gradients and current speeds in winter, which could be used to monitor surface-current intensity by satellite.
