The Mann Eddy is a very small feature of ocean currents in the Atlantic. It is a persistent clockwise circulation in the middle of the North Atlantic ocean. Dr Rory Bingham from Newcastle University, UK, who presented the initial results of the GOCE satellite mission at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) 2010 Fall Meeting[1] describes it as "a persistent pocket of water in the Atlantic that just goes around and around."[2]
