On the Cover: Results from a global ocean model with resolved mesoscale eddies. The upper panel shows a 300- day time mean of the temperature field at a depth of 160m. Temperatures range from 28.8°C to - 1.8°C on a global basis, corresponding to color gradations from reds to blues according to the accompanying scale bar. The interconnectivity of the enid-latitude warm-core gyres is evident, including a linkage between the Pacific Ocean and the South Atlantic Ocean through the lndian Ocean and around the Cape of Good Hope. The lower panel shows the structure of the standard deviation of ocean temperature at 160m depth for the 300-day sample. Dark red areas typically have magnitudes of 2 to 4°C. These areas include essentially all of the known unstable currents of the world ocean, specifically the Gulf Stream, the Kuroshio, the Oyashio, the North Equatorial Countercurrent, the East Australia Current, the East Madagascar Current, the Agulhas Current, the Brazil-Falkland Confluence, and the Antarctic Circumpolar Current
