Abstract

Th e spatial distribution of jet-like striations as see n in th e 1993-2002 mean zonal surface geostrophic velocity indicates a new textur e of th e ocean. SCIENTISTS DISCOVER OCEAN Niiler. "I'm looking forward to the curren t measurements made over CURREN T STRIPES day when we can correctly portray mor e tha n 20 years by the Global Since the 1960s, researchers have most ocean circulation systems with Drifte r Program , now a networ k of theorize d that striated patterns all climate and ecosystem models." mor e tha n 1,300 driftin g buoys. within currents exist in the ocean, In part s of th e Southern Ocean, Maximenk o undertook a com- but until recently there was n o data th e striations—also known as bined satellite an d drifter analysis to support it. Now scientists have ocean fronts—produce alternating of ocean velocity that helped to detected crisscrossing patterns of eastwar d and westward accelera- clarify no t only th e dimensions of current s running throughout the tion s of circulation. Parts of the striated currents at th e surface but world's oceans like quasistationary, patter n nearly circumnavigate also distinct ocean temperature, mesoscale
