daily zonal and meridional sea surface wind components of Quick Scatterometer (QuikSCAT) version 4 ( Ricciardulli et al. 2011 ) and 3-day running mean of Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) SST version 7 ( Wentz et al. 2014 ). Both are provided by Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) on a 0.25° × 0.25° latitude–longitude grid. For estimating transfer functions, rain-flagged observations are excluded. Data missing regions including the landmasses are filled with

). This map was constructed from 10 years of QuikSCAT wind observations spanning the time period November 1999–October 2009, as described in section 2a . Since both raining and rain-free conditions are included in this mean, it is referred to as the all-weather (AW) mean. The band of time-mean convergence—the GSCZ—overlies the approximate position of the Gulf Stream, from the Charleston Bump off the coast of South Carolina, separating from the shelf near Cape Hatteras, extending to the northeast
