(217 mile) and 590 kilometer (367 mile) discontinuities extend over a wide region under those states. The authors suggest that this might be related to increased water content in the transition zone there, or to a significant amount of oceanic material accumulated in the area.

6. New global maps of surface ocean currents made from drifter data

The Global Drifter Program, which began in 1979 in the tropical Pacific Ocean, now spans the globe with a total of 1,250 sensors. Tracked from orbit by satellites the array provides a means to observe global near-surface ocean circulation patterns.

To create an improved representation of the global ocean near-surface currents Lumpkin and Johnson devised a new technique to analyze drifter records. Using 6-hourly drifter observations from 1979 to 2012 the authors isolated the drifter movement caused by near-surface currents. They then calculated the current properties on a 0.5 by 0.5 degree grid. Their approach was novel in that the data were analyzed in elliptical bins, with the shape of each ellipse representing the range of variab
