Inverse-estuarine Features of the Upper Gulf of California
The Upper Gulf of California is the shallow (depth <30 m), tidal area at the head of the Gulf of California. It is an inverse estuary, due to the high evaporation rate (E∼1·1 m year−1) and almost nilExpand

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

Three-dimensional distribution of larval fish assemblages in an anticyclonic eddy in a semi-enclosed sea (Gulf of California)
Transects of CTD (to 1000 m) and zooplankton stations (to 200 m in 50 m strata) were made across an anticyclonic eddy in the southern Gulf of California during October 2007 to determine its influenceExpand

Seasonal changes in larval fish assemblages in a semi-enclosed sea (Gulf of California)
The northern Gulf of California (NGC) is characterized by seasonal hydrography and circulation (cyclonic in summer and anticyclonic in winter), by intense tidal mixing in the midriff archipelagoExpand
