Altimeter-derived variability of surface velocities in the California Current System: Part 1,
Evaluation of TOPEX altimeter velocity resolution. J. Geophys. Res., 102, 12727-12748.
Besides evaluating altimeter performance, the study reveals several
properties of the circulation in the California Current System:
(1) velocity components are not isotropic but are polarized, strongly so at some locations,
(2) there are instances of strong and persistent small-scale spatial variability in the velocity*, and
(3) the energetic region of the California Current is isolated and surrounded by a region of lower energy
starting 500-700 km offshore.
*Quote: “Persistent small-scale variability occurs in the offshore region of the CCS, with opposing velocities of +,- 20 cm/s found within distances of 15-30 km.”
