• #### Lofoten eddies observed by Seagliders ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2018-11-22)
When the Norwegian Atlantic Current passes the Lofoten Basin, it loses a large amount of mass and heat to mesoscale eddies as a result of instabilities of the mean current along the Norwegian Slope. The eddies subsequently ...
