Description/Abstract

This paper presents a study of the characteristics of extra-tropical oceanic Rossby waves from datasets of Sea Surface Height (SSH), Sea Surface Temperature (SST) and ocean colour. The main focus is on the propagation speed of the waves and a comparison is made between the observational results and the speeds predicted by the classical theory and by the most recent extended theory of Rossby waves. There is also discussion, with an example, of the additional information that can be derived by a comparison of the wave signatures in the different datasets.
