[en] Upwelling filaments have been studied for several years. We aim to explain the general process in terms of potential vorticity: An injection of positive vorticity north of the Cape forces the jet to turn offshore, in virtue of the principle of vorticity conservation.

The Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) is implemented in the Cape Ghir region, with horizontal resolution lower than 1 km. A set of process-oriented experiments has been designed in order to determine the mechanisms at the origin of the filament.
