AbstractVertical motion associated with mesoscale and sub-mesoscale oceanic features is of fundamental importance for the exchanges of heat, fresh water and biogeochemical tracers between the surface and the ocean interior. Unfortunately, direct measurements of the vertical velocity are difficult to obtain for usual values (order 10’s m/day). Various indirect methodologies have thus been proposed to estimate vertical velocity from observed density and geostrophic velocity fields. The most used technique is based on the solution of the quasi-geostrophic (QG) Omega equation.
