Histogram of eddy properties.

<p>Histograms of eddy properties are shown in the top row of each panel and the ratio of cyclonic to anticyclonic eddies is shown in the bottom row of each panel. (A) Speed-based eddy radial scale L<sub>s</sub>; (B) amplitude; (C) axial speed U and (D) lifetime of eddies within the study domain and north of 35°S. Cyclones and anticyclones shown as blue and red stepped curves, respectively. Panels (E) through (F) are the same as (A) through (D), except for eddies within the study domain and south of 35°S. Labels in the top right-hand corner of the top row of each panel are the median values of each panel shown in blue and red for cyclonic and anticyclonic eddies, respectively.</p>
