Where we went

This map of sea surface height (from satellite) and the geostrophic currents shows the large-scale pattern of the flow. There is much more variability at smaller scales that does not show up on this image. The yellow pins are waypoints and outline our ship track, which went back and forth across the front (between less and more dense waters) and where there was a strong jet (of almost 80 cm/s). The streaks are the trajectories of the some of the drifters that were deployed in the early stages of the experiment.
