Generation of sub-surface anticyclones at Arctic surface fronts due to a surface stress

Abstract:

Isolated anticyclones are frequently observed below the mixed layer in the Arctic Ocean. Some of these sub-surface anticyclones are thought to originate at surface fronts. However, previous idealized simulations with no surface stress show that only cyclone-anticyclone dipoles can propagate away from baroclinically unstable surface fronts. Numerical simulations of fronts subject to a surface stress presented here show that a surface stress in the same direction as the geostrophic flow inhibit...
