Abstract or Summary
  • The dynamic response to a westerly wind burst which occurred during the Couple Ocean Atmosphere Response Experiment in the warm pool of the equatorial Pacific Ocean is described using velocity, hydrography, and microstructure measurements. Turbulent fluxes distributed momentum input from the wind over a near-surface layer of variable thickness. Coriolis and pressure gradient terms combined to induce a wavelike response whose frequency was close to the local inertial frequency. Wind stress variations on near-inertial timescales interfered both constructively and destructively with the wave response, exerting considerable influence on the observed currents.
