Outer Shelf Region Awash

May 9: After the clear days over the weekend, clouds set in, winds picked up and so did the waves. Increases in wave height increase the range of the CODAR coverage. This one shows the strong currents in the shelf break front meandering their way down the shelf, likely leaving the out shelf region awash in warm water from the Great Warm Ring. Current velocities in the jet are running about 50 cm/sec.
