Upwelling shadows at Mejillones Bay (northern Chilean coast): A remote sensing in situ analysis
(Escuela de Ciencias del Mar, 2003)
Upwelling shadows are high temperature regions within coastal upwelling systems. In this article its dynamics is described at Mejillones Bay, in the northern Chilean coast, using satellite images and in situ current data. ...
Upwelling shadows at Mejillones Bay (northern Chilean coast): a remote sensing in situ analysis

Multiscale upwelling forcing cycles and biological response off north-central Chile
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2002)
The reproductive biology of Diplodus argenteus (Sparidae) in the coastal upwelling system of Cabo Frio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The reproductive biology of the seabream Diplodus argenteus, a dominant coastal fishery species, was investigated over two consecutive seasons (2001-2002) at Cabo Frio, Brazil, a low-latitude upwelling system. The sex ratio ...
THE CO-INFLUENCE OF THE SEA BREEZE AND THE COASTAL UPWELLING AT CABO FRIO: A NUMERICAL INVESTIGATION USING COUPLED MODELS
(INST OCEANOGRAFICO, UNIV SAO PAULO, 2011)
A coupled atmospheric-oceanic model was used to investigate whether there is a positive feedback between the coastal upwelling and the sea breeze at Cabo Frio - RJ (Brazil). Two experiments were performed to ascertain the ...
Effects of coastal upwelling on the structure of macrofaunal communities in SE Brazil
The effects of coastal upwelling on the structure of macrofaunal communities were investigated in two shallow bays in SE Brazil.Water, sediment and fauna samples were collected at four time-points corresponding to austral ...
Fish larvae distribution off Mejillones Peninsula (northern Chile) during a coastal upwelling event in Spring 1999: Interactions with the cold upwelling plume
We examined the interaction between vertical and horizontal distribution of fish larvae off Mejillones Peninsula (23°S), northern Chile, under conditions of active coastal upwelling. An oceanographic survey covered spatial ...
Satellite remote sensing reveals coastal upwelling events in the San Matías Gulf?Northern Patagonia
Coastal upwelling events are effective in fluxing nutrients upward to the euphotic layer, thus promoting the growth of marine phytoplankton. Satellite data may provide useful information to detect and characterize upwelling ...
