The technology in altimetric satellites provides high spatial and temporal resolution in the sea surface level measurements to resolve mesoscale processes in the ocean. Because of their contribution to momentum, heat, salt, and carbon fluxes they are essential to understand the dynamics of the ocean. In the South Atlantic, mesoscale vortices occur generally in regions of strong currents...
Mesoscale oceanic eddies are quasi-circular coherent structures having typical horizontal scales of 10-100 km, vertical extent of 100-1000 m, and duration life of several weeks/months. Because of their capability to transport tracers along their trajectories, they play an important role in ocean dynamics and budgets. Since the launch of satellite altimetry missions ERS, TOPEX/Poseidon, ...
