FIGURE A1.2  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:
