Figure F11. (A) Ekman velocity from satellite scatterometer measurements, (B) geostrophic currents from Topex/Poseidon, and (C) the sum of the currents box superimposed upon sea-surface temperature anomalies (SSTA). The surface currents in the vicinity of proposed Site OSN-2 are ~1 kt. The Equatorial Countercurrent is well to the south.
