FSU SURFACE PSEUDO-STRESS VECTORS AND ANOMALIES: Pseudo stress vector (top) are objectively
analyzed from ship and buoy winds on a 2 degree grid. Ship and buyo data are independently weighted
and the background field is created from the data. Contour interval of the vector magnitude is
20 m2s-2. Anomalies (bottom) are departures from 1981-2010 mean.
The contour interval is 15 m2s-2. For more information, please visit:
