Drifter speeds (left), non-tidal speeds (centre), and recorded sea surface temperature (right):
Bin-averaged drifter non-tidal velocities (left), tidal speeds (centre), and difference between non-tidal and tidal speeds (NT-T, right):
Deployment and drifter tracks and results from Rigolet Narrows deployment. Shown are the deployment route (grey line) and sea surface temperatures along-route (coloured circles) as well as the drifter track and calculated speeds (coloured line). The drifter deployment location is indicated by a red X.
Sea surface temperature (SST) along deployment route. SST is shown as a function of latitude for the entire route from the start (yellow circles) through to the end (purple circles), with the time of day indicated by the colour. Regions and events of interest are annotated on the figure.
