Animation of 0-114-m nutrient in 1/10th-deg. OFES


Figure 1: 0-114-m nutrient in OFES for the year 2004.

Unlike the phytoplankton, the nutrient in the region around station ALOHA seems to be equally influenced by horizontal advection (mostly from the southeast) and local upwelling. Furthermore, the high meridional gradients of nutrient to the north and south of the Hawaiian Archipelago do not move meridionally with season as much as the gradient of phytoplankton.
