Figure. Time series of Florida Current transport (yellow), Ekman transport (red), upper mid-ocean transport (purple) and overturning transport (dark blue) for the available record from 2004 to 2020. Also shown are the basinwide transports in the upper and lower NADW layers (UNADW: 1100-3000 m; LNADW: 3000-5000 m; green and light blue lines, respectively). The high-frequency data represent 10-day averages while the superimposed curves are 18-month lowpass filtered data after removal of each series' climatological seasonal cycle
