Depth dependence of westward-propagating North Atlantic features diagnosed from altimetry and a numerical 1/6 degree model

A 1/6° numerical simulation is used to investigate the vertical structure of westward propagation between 1993 and 2000 in the North Atlantic ocean. The realism of the simulated westward propagating signals, interpreted principally as the signature of first-mode baroclinic Rossby waves (RW), is firs...
