Short summary
Mesoscale eddies are large bodies of swirling water, which generally refer to ocean signals with spatial scales of tens to hundreds of kilometers and temporal scales of days to months. This study identified events of splitting and merging of mesoscale eddies in the global ocean based on sea level height data. Multicore structures represent an intermediate stage in the process of eddy evolution, similar to the generation of multiple nuclei in a cell as a preparatory phase for cell division.
