Float track inside an atlantic SCV. Tracks of two acoustically tracked floats at 700 m depth near Bermuda (Riser et al. 1986). They were deployed at day 0 about 20 km apart and stayed close together over a period of more than 70 days while being advected by mesoscale currents. One of these was inside a SCV, the other not. Intersecting hydrographic profiles showed a large, trapped water mass anomaly in T–S and \(\hbox {O}_2\), indicating a subpolar origin for the SCV
