It is demonstrated that recently observed cyclonic recirculation gyres in the Irminger and Labrador Seas may be forced by the strong cyclonic wind stress curl that develops each winter seaward of the east coast of Greenland. Idealized analytical and numerical models forced with such variable winds over a sloping bottom reproduce the essential aspects of the observed gyres (strength, location, and horizontal and vertical length scales). The communication between the forcing region in thedoi:10.1175/1520-0485(2003)033<1829:wraeit>2.0.co;2 fatcat:6ge3dsjj6ra65fxt5nkvhk2g5y
