Navigating the eddy field

Friday, July 4th, 2008

RU17 is rounding the southern side of the large cold eddy.  We are working our way out.

 

Currents are decreasing - thats good.

 

Altimetry says the edge of the ring is at about 45 W.  We'll keep flying east for 6-12 hours before turning north to catch the warm eddy.
