Description

Excerpt from Daily and Weekly Upwelling Indices, West Coast of North America, 1967-73 Daily and weekly indices of intensity of large-scale wind-induced coastal upwelling at selected locations along the west coast of North America are presented for the 7-yr period. 1967-73. The indices are based on 6-hourly computations of the offshore component of Ekman transport using the synoptic surface atmospheric pressure analyses produced by the Fleet Numerical Weather Central to estimate the sea surface stress. The magnitude of offshore transport is considered an indication of result ant upwelling through the bottom of the Ekman layer. A spatial distortion in absolute magnitude results in noncomparability of numerical values between different locations.
