First Full Shot of the Great Warm Ring

April 25, 2006: This is the biggest warm core ring I have ever seen. I remember a similar great ring back in 1988 or 1989, but that one was long and narrow, and it broke up into three pieces. This one is nearly circular. It extends completely across the shelf from the Gulf Stream near 68W to the Shelf Break near 71W. Remember that warm water on the northeast side. Its a little farther north now and right up against the shelf break.
