Short summary
The surface ocean is turbulent from several hundred to a few kilometres. The more the current field is turbulent, the more traveling waves over the underlying current that are scattered. In this paper we focus on an isolated eddy where spontaneous instabilities have occurred, resulting in the emergence of smaller structures. Thanks to the wave scattering we have been able to retrieve the underlying surface current gradients normally not retrievable with traditional current measurements.
