Satellite observations of mesoscale eddies in the Gulfs of Tehuantepec and Papagayo (Eastern Tropical Pacific)
SeaWiFS high-resolution ocean-color images and AVHRR sea-surface temperature were obtained for the period from November 1998 to March 1999. Generation of mesoscale eddies was observed for the regionExpand

Spatial and temporal variability of the Brazil‐Malvinas Confluence and the La Plata Plume as seen by SeaWiFS and AVHRR imagery
[1] Ocean color (OCTS, SeaWiFS) and sea surface temperature (AVHRR) images were used to evaluate spatial and temporal variability of the Brazil-Malvinas Confluence and La Plata Plume (20° to 45°S andExpand

Dynamic Regionalization of the Gulf of Mexico based on normalized radiances (nLw) derived from MODIS-Aqua
A dynamic regionalization of the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) was carried out based on normalized radiances derived from MODIS-Aqua while considering its seasonal variability (Hurricane and Non-hurricaneExpand

Evaluation of Semi-Analytical Algorithms to Retrieve Particulate and Dissolved Absorption Coefficients in Gulf of California Optically Complex Waters
TLDR
We evaluated the absorption coefficient of phytoplankton (aph(λ)) and dissolved and detrital organic matter (adg(λ) at three wavelengths (λ of 412, 443, and 488 nm) in a zone with optically complex waters. Expand

A suboxic chlorophyll-a maximum persists within the Pacific oxygen minimum zone off Mexico
Abstract The tropical Oxygen Minimum Zones (OMZ) are known to shelter a chlorophyll-a maximum (CM) within suboxic waters ( - 25 m year-round, which suggests that persistent low-light levels allowExpand
