Satellite-Derived Estimates of Phytoplankton Biomass Off Southern Baja California
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
All available estimates of photosynthetic pigment concentration derived from data generated during 1978-1986 by the sensor CZCS were used to interpret the spatial and temporal variations of phytoplankton biomass in a transect from Punta San Hipolito to Cabo Corrientes. Highest pigment concentrations were present in areas near the coast. It is suggested that they were due to upwelling and to interaction between the marine currents and local physiography. There was a clear seasonal variation near the coast. El Nino had a clear effect on pigment concentration, but it was not the only cause of interannual variation. -from Authors
