Summary
Abstract: Determination of the effects of coastal-trapped waves on sea surface
temperature, phytoplankton pigment concentration and synoptic scale
winds in the near coastal zone.

Along the west coast of the Americas, sea levels and alongshore
currents show large oscillations at intraseasonal periods (~30-80
days). Observations and theory have shown that many of these
fluctuations are caused by coastal ... View entire text
