On the subtropical front in the South Atlantic Ocean

By Michael Funke


Includes abstract.Includes bibliographical references (leaves 64-72).The region surrounding the Tristan da Cunha Archipelago has received little attention to date due to its remote location. An extensive revision of previous literature covers the majority of oceanographic research undertaken in the region of interest. New satellite derived oceanographic data sets and the SODA Reanalysed model are used to overcome the sparse extent of in-situ data in this region. Using latitudinal temperature gradients to track the surface expression of the Subtropical Front from AMSR and OISST satellite derived sea surface temperature data reveals consistencies with previous literature
