Measurements of transient currents in mid-ocean by altimetryEvidence is put forward that SEASAT-A altimetry will be accurate enough to provide interesting information on transient currents in mid-ocean areas. The discussion rests on the assumption that the observed currents are largely in geostrophic equilibrium rather than due to local winds. Surface current velocities are determined by integrating satellite navigation positions and dead reckoning data using an automatic log attached to a vessel hull.
