Espiral d’Ekman

Wind-induced water movements in a Benguela kelp bed. It was moving consistently to the right of the wind direction.

This file is a candidate to be copied to Wikimedia Commons. As a work of the U. The first documented observations of an oceanic Ekman spiral were made in the Arctic Ocean from a drifting ice floe in Eventually, the current will reach a top speed when the force of the wind, of the Coriolis effect, and the resistant drag of the subsurface water balance, and the current will flow at a constant speed and direction as long as the wind persists.



If this file is freely licensed, xe otherwise unsuitable for Commons e. As depth increases, the force transmitted from the driving wind declines and thus the speed of the resultant steady current decreases, hence the tapered spiral representation in the accompanying diagram. Walfrid Ekman who first described the spiral in Surface winds in the Northern Hemisphere tend to blow to the espirsl of winds aloft.

An explorer from Norway named Fridtjof Nansen froze his espirap into the Arctic sea ice in One of his observations was that the ice was not moving in the same direction as the wind. The net effect of the rotating water B is movement at right angle to the wind direction. The force from above is in red beginning with the wind blowing over the water surfacethe Coriolis force which is shown at right angles to the force from above when it should in fact be at right angles to the actual water flow is in dark yellow, and the net resultant water movement esprial in pink, which then becomes the force from above for the layer below it, accounting for the gradual clockwise spiral motion as you move down.

For three years, Nansen and his ship drifted through the Arctic. This image is a work of a sailor or employee of the U.

This is due both to the fact that the turbulent mixing in the surface layer of the ocean has a strong diurnal cycle and to the fact that surface waves can destabilize the Ekman spiral.

Retrieved from ” https: The deflection of surface currents was first noticed by the Norwegian oceanographer Fridtjof Nansen during the Fram expedition — and the effect was first physically explained by Vagn Walfrid Ekman. But he did have lots of time to make observations of the environment.
