High productivity (maximaB3 g C m 2 day ) of the Eastern Boundary Currents (EBCs), i.e. the California, PeruHumboldt, Canary and Benguela Currents, is driven by a combination of local forcing and large-scale circulation. The characteristics of the deep water brought to the surface by upwelling favorable winds depend on the large-scale circulation patterns. Here we use a new hydrographic and nutrient climatology together with satellite measurements of the wind vector, sea-surface temperature… CONTINUE READING
