midAtlantic, mid-Atlantic, or MidAtlantic?
This is part of a scientific manuscript.
The NCEP2 bias shows that it reproduces circulation and qυ similarly to the MERRA over the midAtlantic and up into the eastern Sahel region to approximately 15°N, 7°E, demarked by the zero-difference contour and the smaller V925 difference vectors.
I do have a style guide. It is tricky.
Atlantic Ocean, North, South, but not northern or southern or central
Words formed with prefixes:
for mid, spell words with closed form, unless the prefix precedes a capitalized word or a numeral...
So is "mid-Atlantic" acceptable under both rules?
