Current meter readings from a three dimensional array moored in the Florida Straits as part of the Subtropical Atlantic Climate Studies were used in investigations of meandering and transport variations in the Florida Current. Frequency domain empirical mode analysis was used to find the most coherent energetic meandering signals. These were located within two limited frequency bands centered near periods of 12 days and 5 days. The propagation and energy transfer of these meanders is described.
