  • Eddy characteristics derived from different data resources are compared:sea surface temperature (SST), sea surface height anomaly (SSHA) and surface drifter trajectories. The comparison suggests that the eddy statistical characteristics are different using different variables to delineate eddies, but they show the similar trend. Based on the comparison, abnormal eddies with warm (cold) cores but counter-clockwise (clockwise) rotation are found in the Kuroshio Extension region.
