eddy interaction with the main stream. As established below, these banded structures are near-inertial waves. Fig . 5. Plan views of normalized 30-h running average surface vorticity for days (a) 6.5 and (b) 10.5 and normalized Eulerian high-pass surface vorticity for days (c) 6.5 and (d) 10.5. Closed black contours indicate the regions where 30-h running averaged surface horizontal velocity magnitude exceeds 1.2 m s −1 . Diamonds in (c) and (d) are Eulerian stations for the time series shown

between two concentric cylinders at radii a and b and filled to a height h 0 relative to the base of the tank. A clear Plexiglas sheet placed above (but not in contact with) the fluid prevents wind stress from the nonrotating ambient air. Fig . 3. Schematics of the tank geometry. (a) Plan view showing the annular domain, the cylindrical polar coordinate system , , and the field of view (FOV) of the imaging camera. (b) Vertical cross section shows (to scale) the dimensions of the inner and
