Abstract : Several recent studies, mainly based on satellite observations, have shown significant coupled interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere at oceanic mesoscales. There are unambiguous relations between sea surface temperature gradient and surface winds and clear imprints of oceanic eddies in the lower atmosphere. We use high resolution regional ocean-atmosphere coupled model configurations to study these interactions in eastern boundary upwelling systems California and Peru-Chile.
Different model solutions are analyzed to understand the combined effects of sea surface temperature and oceanic surface currents on the ocean-atmosphere interaction. The islands are part of the Southern Indian Ocean Islands tundra ecoregion that includes several subantarctic islands. Plant life is mainly limited to grasses, mosses and lichens , although the islands are also known for the indigenous, edible Kerguelen cabbage , a good source of vitamin C to mariners. The wildlife is particularly vulnerable to introduced species and one particular problem has been cats.
The main island is the home of a well-established feral cat population, descended from ships' cats. There are also populations of wild sheep Ovis orientalis orientalis and reindeer.
Results Seal foraging strategy and sea ice habitat Winter post-moult foraging trips of 43 SESs 21 females and 22 males for a total of , dives from Kerguelen Islands to the seasonal Antarctic sea ice zone were monitored using satellite-relayed position and diving data from to Fig. The authors declare no competing financial interests. We have proposed mechanisms by which sea ice changes might have direct effects on top predators through trophic cascading processes. However, how Weddell seals find food in the winter months remains poorly documented. Additional Information How to cite this article : Labrousse, S.

In the s and s, French geologist Edgar Albert de la Rue began to introduce several species of salmonids. Of the seven species introduced, only brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis and brown trout Salmo trutta survived to establish wild populations.
The islands appear in a number of fictional works. Fail there — ye've time to weld your shaft — ay, eat it, ere ye're spoke, Or make Kerguelen under sail — three jiggers burned wi' smoke!

French author Jean-Paul Kauffmann produced a non-fiction account of his journey to the islands, titled "The Arch of Kerguelen: Voyage to the Islands of Desolation".
