The image above, which is derived from SeaWiFS data acquired on November 6, 1999, provides another view of the Ras al Hadd jet and the associated eddy circulation. The tripole circulation is particularly evident; the arrows show the anticyclonic circulation to the south, and the cyclonic circulation of the coastal eddy.
Image of the diffuse attenuation coefficient at 532 nanometers (nm), derived from SeaWiFS data acquired on November 6, 1999. Although SeaWiFS does not have a 532 nm band, calculations using SeaWiFS data at 555 nm allow derivation of this quantity for comparison to MODIS data acquired at the 532 nm wavelength.
