Geostrophic current investigations with SeasatThe measurement of sea surface topology by SEASAT satellite allows for the detection of baroclinic or barotropic geostrophic flows, as well as the tracking of cyclonic cold core rings generated by currents. It is stipulated that SEASAT is the only system capable of measuring pressure and motion fields of a sea surface reliably, synoptically, and at an affordable cost.
