Firstly, high-pressure systems, present behind each cold front, create a large pressure difference at sea level across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, and this generates northerly winds through the Chivela Pass and, consequently, a strong wind jet over the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Wind jets induce strong surface water transport westwards as a major plume, generating upwelling and mixing the water column.
