1. Introduction Island wakes may be a significant sink of momentum for ocean currents and a source of vorticity in the interior, thus transforming incident currents. Islands in the path of energetic flows are often observed to have leeward flow reversals that are associated with the separation of a topographic boundary current ( Heywood et al. 1990 ). This recirculation may detach in the form of wake eddies, which can transport trapped water mass properties and vorticity up to hundreds of
