Kinetic Energy of Eddy‐Like Features From Sea Surface Altimetry

Abstract The mesoscale eddy field plays a key role in the mixing and transport of physical and biological properties and redistribution of energy in the ocean. Eddy kinetic energy is commonly defined as the kinetic energy of the time‐varying component of the velocity field. However, this definition...
