Eastern Pacific Coastal Upwelling from LDEO Climate Library
Entry ID: LDEO_UPWELLING


Summary
Abstract: The Eastern Pacific Coastal Upwelling data set consists of results
from a coordinated program of surfzone water collection and analysis
along the western coasts of Chile, Mexico, and the United
States. Sampling started at the end of 1996 and was supported by the
Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI), the US
National Science Foundation, and the Climate Center of the
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. The sampling strategy is based on
the observations of van Geen et al. (1992) and van Geen and Husby
(1996) near San Francisco Bay, California, showing that concentration
of upwelling-sensitive tracers such as nutrients and the trace metal
cadmium in surfzone water is determined mainly by large-scale
wind-forcing rather than local processes. The data set consists of
measurements of cadmimum, nitrite and nitrate, phosphorus, silicate,
and salinity from Bio-Bio, Coliumo, Las Cruces, El Quisco, Las Lozas,
Santa Maria, Los Cerritos, Tecolote, Arbolitos, Tres_Hermanas, Pillar
Point, San Francisco, Humboldt Bay, Trinidad, Seven Devils, and Coos
Bay.
