Determination of the impact of coastal wind variability and associated pressure gradients in the Humboldt Current System off Chile.
Entry ID: GLOBEC_048_CHILE_012

Abstract: Determination of the impact of coastal wind variability and associated

pressure gradients (mid-latitude frontal disturbances, coastal lows
and other atmospheric waves) on the temporal and spatial distribution
of upwelling events in the Humbolct Current System off Chile.

Wind driven coastal upwelling is a prevalent phenomenom in the HCS off
Chile. Equatorward winds along the coast not only ... View entire text
