Special Issue: Upper Ocean Processes: Peter Niiler's Contributions and Inspirations

On the Cover: FRONT COVER: (top) RMS of eddy kinetic energy from drifter velocity observations at 15 me depth binned at 1/3° x 1/3° resolution. The map was obtained between 1979 and 2012. (bottom) Average zonal currents from drifter velocity observations at 15 m depth binned at 1/3° x 1/3° resolution. The map was obtained from over 16,000 drifters deployed between 1979 and 2012. Back: Peter Niiler checking the assembly of a TRISTAR drifter. BACK COVER: Peter Niiler checking the assembly of a TRISTAR drifter.
