It is not well understood whether coastal upwelling is a net CO2 source to the atmosphere or a net CO 2 sink to the ocean due to high temporal variability of air– sea CO2 exchange (CO2 flux) in coastal upwelling zones. Upwelling transports heterotrophic, CO 2 enriched water to the surface and releases CO 2 to the atmosphere, whereas the presence of nutrient-rich water at the surface supports high primary production and atmospheric CO 2 uptake. To quantify the effects of upwelling on CO2 flux… CONTINUE READING
