horizontal velocity vectors

Figure 4: Monthly progressive vector diagrams (north vertically up) calculated from the Eulerian time series bandpass filtered about semi-diurnal (0.0769-0.0841 cph), diurnal (0.0370-0.0435 cph) and synoptic (0.00417-0.0125 cph) time scales and unfiltered to include all time scales. The data are from 3 m depth and the months of January, April, July and October, 1994 are representative of the seasonal modulation.
