For my Ph.D. I address the problem of a complex and dynamic frontal system with intense mesoscale eddy activity in the region of Brazil-Falkland Confluence, including quantitative measurements on how and where seawater mixes, which are crucial to complete the global circulation loop and future climate modeling.
