Fighting our way out

Most recent image of the Warm Core Ring centered near 39 30 N, 63 30 W.

RU15 is in the northwest quadrant of this ring, near 40 N, 64 W. Strong currents to northeast. We are using the glider velocity to fly perpendicular to the strong eddy currents that are swirling us clockwise around the center.

Temperatures in the center (right hand side) are very warm.
We want to see these temperatures decrease as well as the currents
to indicate we are leaving the eddy on the north side.
