of sustained glider observations ( Rudnick and Cole 2011 ) provide the mean current patterns and their variability around the island of Palau in the tropical North Pacific on horizontal scales of 10–100 km, vertical scales of 10 m, and temporal scales as short as a week. For flows with rotation, a reasonable measure of eddy intensity is the Rossby number Ro, here defined as the ratio of relative to planetary vorticity (Ro = ζ / f ). Here Ro is a signed quantity, as used in, for example, Whitt
