To the extent that the ocean eddy field and its variability is communicated to the atmosphere, ocean eddy-atmosphere interactions are important for the role played by the ocean in the coupled variability of the climate system. These interactions are a potentially important process, that, in its absence or poor representation may contribute to the uncertainty in climate predictions and...
