1. Introduction Flow interactions over space and time with abrupt topography, such as with small-scale islands and deep ocean ridges, can significantly impact regional to large-scale ocean circulation through intense turbulent mixing, formation of mesoscale wakes and eddy shedding behind islands, submesoscale upwelling and downwelling, and generation of lee internal waves ( Baines 1995 ). Along with ocean variability due to topographic features, islands and atolls also modify the atmospheric

1. Introduction Gyres are the most prominent feature of the global surface circulation and have motivated decades of research aimed at understanding their dynamics ( Pedlosky 1990 ). Gyres are understood as primarily wind-driven features that respond to the curl of the surface stress generated by the wind, rather than the wind’s absolute strength and direction ( Sverdrup 1947 ; Stommel 1948 ; Rhines 1986 ; Luyten and Stommel 1986 ). The importance of the vorticity balance was recognized in
