      Soon after deployment, all three floats drifted eastward almost parallel to the coast by the peripheral current system (Fig. 1, Fig. 2, Fig. 3).During the first 2 months, the float BS at m first moved very slowly eastward (∼1 cm s −1), suggesting entrapment at the center of the western cyclonic approaching the Anatolian coast and encountering the Rim Current by mid Laurence Armi's 57 research works with 3, citations and 2, reads, including: The effect of a strong density step on blocked stratified flow over topography
