Adopting a Swot crossover : Image of the Month on the AVISO website

Adopting a Swot crossover for biophysical studies is the Image of the Month « July 2018 » on the AVISO website.

The selected figure shows the Oceanic fronts derived from altimetry with the finite-size Lyapunov exponent technique (FSLEs, in grey) on May 9, 2018, overlaid on sampling stations (red crosses) along the Beautemps-Beaupré trajectory during the PROTEVS-BioSwot campaign, and on micro-organisms density (color scale) computed from in situ instrument samplings. The FSLE filaments seem to constitute barriers to the dispersion of the micro-organisms (Credits MIO/LOcean).
