The Shelf-Slope Jet Takes Over

May 5: The Great Warm Ring still extends fully across the slope water, from the Gulf Stream the shelf break. The warm water on the northeast side is heading down the shelf break front along the entire New Jersey shelf break. The surface shelf slope front is displaced significanly shoreward of the shelf break. There is a lot of hot water heading south fast. On the northern side, cold shelf water is being pulled off and transported clear across the slope and along the Gulf Stream north wall.
