Abstract

Barotropic tidal and tidal residual currents calculated with a finite element model of the southwest coast of Vancouver Island are combined with Lagrangian particle tracking techniques to follow drifters deployed in the Swiftsure Eddy. The average retention time for a passive drifter is calculated and the amount of swimming required for a simple fish to remain in the eddy is estimated.
