Short summary
Surface flow fields of the global oceans are dominated by so-called mesoscale (50–300 km) eddies. They usually drift westward at a few kilometers per day, transporting mass, temperature, chlorophyll, and debris. There are several methods to identify and track eddies based on satellite measurements, some of them very computationally demanding. Here we extend a recently proposed simple procedure to the global scale, which gives quick coarse-grained statistics on mesoscale vortex properties.
