A Numerical Investigation of the Annual Variability in the Gulf of California
The observations of sea level at the annual frequency in the Gulf of California are reproduced both in amplitude and phase with a horizontal two-dimensional linear two-layer model. The main forcingExpand

Seasonal and interannual variability of satellite-derived chlorophyll pigment, surface height, and temperature off Baja California
[1] Mean fields, seasonal cycles, and interannual variability are examined for fields of satellite-derived chlorophyll pigment concentrations (CHL), sea surface height (SSH), and sea surfaceExpand

On the summer poleward coastal current off SW México
[1] For the first time on the basis of direct observations (June 2003 and June 2005), the characteristics of the summer-time coastal poleward current off SW Mexico are reported. Only the surfaceExpand

A kinematic analysis of the Indian/Atlantic interocean exchange
We analyze the Indian/Atlantic interocean exchanges in an eddy-permitting numerical simulation focusing on the Cape Basin, a region of the southeastern Atlantic bounded on the northwest by the WalvisExpand

The Effect of the Seasonal Variation of Stratification on the Circulation of the Northern Gulf of California
Abstract Direct current measurements reveal that the circulation of the northern Gulf of California in the annual timescale consists of a cyclonic basinwide gyre (∼0.35 m s−1) that lasts from June toExpand

Water Masses and Circulation in the Tropical Pacific off Central Mexico and Surrounding Areas
AbstractThe seasonal variations and the interactions of the water masses in the tropical Pacific off central Mexico (TPCM) and four surrounding areas were examined based on an extensive newExpand

Mesoscale eddies in the northeastern Pacific tropical-subtropical transition zone: Statistical characterization from satellite altimetry
[1] Mesoscale eddies in the northeastern Pacific tropical-subtropical transition zone (16°N–30°N; 130°W–102°W) are analyzed using nearly 18 years of satellite altimetry and an automatedExpand

Air‐sea CO2 fluxes above the stratified oxygen minimum zone in the coastal region off Mexico
Oxygen minimum zones (OMZs) are important sources of CO2 to the atmosphere when physical forces bring subsurface water with high dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) to the surface. This study examines,Expand

Freshwater exchanges and surface salinity in the Colombian basin, Caribbean Sea
Despite the heavy regional rainfall and considerable discharge of many rivers into the Colombian Basin, there have been few detailed studies about the dilution of Caribbean Surface Water and theExpand
