). 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

eddies and is similar to observations (e.g., Park et al. 2006 ; Ma et al. 2015 ). Note also that the downwind convergence is twice as large as the upwind divergence, which is generally not observed when doing averages over all weather conditions (e.g., Frenger et al. 2013 ). For weak-wind conditions ( Fig. 4d ), the situation is different as a strong monopolar convergence pattern is located slightly downwind of the warm eddy. Fig . 4. Composites above warm eddies of (a),(d) divergence of surface
