Fig. 5.67 Along-stream evolution of the uniform potential vorticity current with parameters g' = 0.001, a = 0.01, transport = 5 Sv: a along-stream path of the current; the topography is indicated by the dotted lines; b cross-section of the interface revealing the change in structure from 60° N to 10° N; c along-stream trend in peak velocity of the current, where the maximum possible value is indicated by the dashed line (Pickart and Huang, 1995).
