Abstract

The upper-ocean thermodynamic observations forced by Hurricane Lili are analyzed. In the analysis of the overall energy budget, the density (mass) field is necessary for estimating the potential portion of mechanical energy. The density field is computed from the analyzed temperature and salinity observations. The interior part of the Loop Current warm core show little change after the storm's passage, while density increase (due to oceanic mixed layer cooling) is apparent in the Gulf of Mexico to the NW of the loop current.
