OCEAN COLOR FROM SPACE: Ocean Meanders

 

CZCS Indian Ocean Climatology, January-March
Large meanders associated with the retroflection of the Agulhas Current as it flows along the eastern coast of Africa are seen in this composite from all CZCS data acquired between January and March (top). The equatorial Pacific, as seen in this image representing October through December conditions (bottom), shows the ocean color signature of the cusp-shaped equatorial waves that have also been observed in sea surface temperature, sea level, and drifting buoy measurements.
