If you are a scientist looking for a particular document, then your best option is to use one of the menu items located to your lower left. If you are not a scientist and are looking for an item that is of broad interest then you may wish to go first to the "press releases", "multimedia", and "walking on ice". If you don't find what you want over there, then you may wish to use the search engines on the left.

Reddy Maker Video Feature

Analysis video of current research on eddy dynamics

Eddies generated by a a subcritical bottom slope. Upstream the bottom has a strong enough slope to sustain a continuous unbroken current (i.e., the slope is supercritical). In the region between 0 and 200 kilometers the slope is reduced to a subcritical value so the current can only exist there as a chain of eddies. Farther downstream the slope returns to the high supercritical upstream values so the eddies merge and form a continuous current similar to the upstream flow.
