Abstract

A 5 year record (1976-80) of weekly Gulf Stream paths digitized from the US Navy Ocean Frontal Analysis is analyzed to define a mean Gulf Stream path and weekly space-time series of fluctuations about the mean. This satellite-derived Gulf Stream frontal mean locus is used as a natural coordinate system in which NODC historical expendable bathythermograph data is averaged to determine the mean cross stream thermal structure.-from Authors
