Figure 2: (a) Tasman Sea region of Franklin cruise. Black arrows are surface currents along the cruise tracks derived from the ADCP data, the shaded and contoured areas correspond to the steric height field obtained from CARS climatology and an altimeter height anomaly field. The contour interval is 2.5 cm. Red shading is warmer water and blue shading is colder water. (b) The steric height field along section AB derived from the CARS/altimeter height anomaly field (red) and from CTD measurements (blue). Heights are relative to 2000 dB level.
