This front seems to be related to the cold water upwelled
off Punta Lavapie, which is then transported northward by a coastal jet that flows along the shelf break (Fig.
The upwelling filaments defined two frontal zones, a coastal front and an oceanic front both associated with upwelled

water is relatively rich in iron, the macronutrient needed for growth by most organisms, and the production is high in many areas of the Galapagos and surrounding waters .
2) it is assumed that the upwelled
water was originated at this depth-range during our experiment.
The high productivity of the California Current (CC) is primarily the result of local wind-driven seasonal upwelling and the interaction of alongshore currents with prominent coastal features such as capes, headlands, and bays that advect upwelled
water masses into complex patterns of offshore filaments and coastal retentive eddies (Davis, 1985; Gan and Allen, 2002).
This implies that either water which upwelled
in the Southern Ocean, after 16,500 years ago, had a vigorous exchange with the atmosphere, allowing its 14C-clock to be reset, or the circulation was significantly different than what the current paradigm is.
water did not reach the sea surface at the site of the mooring station.
The Peruvian and Chilean regions differ in their upwelling characteristics as well, with stronger winds along the Peruvian coast upwelling subsurface countercurrent water, while off Chile subantarctic water of the equatorward flowing coastal current is upwelled
(Wolff et al., 2003).
Therefore, statistical analyses of upwelling parameters (horizontal scales of the upwelled
water and the upwelling-related filaments, temperature differences between the upwelled
and the surrounding water) as well as the frequency of upwelling events during summer by using SST from satellite remote sensing images is an important task.
