Surface oceanic kinetic energy is of interest for many reasons, and a greater understanding of the vertical structure of the kinetic energy would aid interpretation of ongoing and proposed remote sensing missions that are focused on velocity. In this work, kinetic energy (KE) at the sea surface (0 m) and 15 m depth in high-resolution global simulations (HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model; HYCOM, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology general circulation model; MITgcm) is compared with KE...
