Figure D3. Plot of the principal axes ellipse for the 5-m current at EF and the wind stress at NDBC 44011. The ellipses for the tidal band current (T<33hr) and the low-frequency (subtidal: T>33hr) current are shown. The subtidal ellipse is plotted at the end of the mean current vector, oriented almost due south. The wind stress ellipse is also plotted at the end of the mean wind stress, oriented towards the southeast. The wind stress has been scaled up by 100 to simply plotting; the mean wind stress is about 0.06 N/m2.
