      This is NOAA's idea of how the Gulf Loop Current should appear, whereas this month, here is how it looks.

      Notice that it is not penetrating in as far as usual.

      That is what was of such concern to the Italian scientist who published the paper in June.

        the two graphics look very similar to me.

        Can you explain in greater detail the statistical or causal significance of the variation?

        Part of your premise seems to be that this shift is part of a larger pattern of change in the stream, viewing this similarly to the issues of climate and weather:

        What facts would lead us to infer or deduce that this is not only seasonal change?

          Historically the Gulf Loop Current has had a figure eight movement, with a secondary reverse action far into the western part of the Gulf.

          I'm trying to figure out where their GIF archives are.  So far I've only gone through manually, month by month, to verify that this year's appearance differs from last year's.

          Indeed the western, more interior action of the Gulf Loop Current - historically visible - has not been visible since June when the scientist published his paper.

          While realizing the bias of the radio station who arranged an interview with Dr. Gianluigi Zangari, I hope you will listen to their call to him.  While his English isn't great, his explanation of the situation is intelligible.  

          I'll be curious to hear your thoughts once you've heard his presentation.
