Impact of North Brazil Current Rings on Local Circulation and Coral Reef Fish Recruitment to Barbados, West Indies
Entry ID: RSMAS_CPL-001c

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Early observations of the flow environment around the island of Barbados
indicated frequent occurrence of strong current reversals associated with
surface salinity fronts. Higher resolution spatial and temporal measurements of
the flow regime in 1996 and 1997 provided a comprehensive view of the local
surface circulation (0-100 m), revealing that external forcing by North Brazil
Current (NBC) ... View entire text
