Abstract or Summary
  • The oceanic phenomenon of upwelling along the Oregon coast is examined. Upwelling in both the open ocean and coastal regions is discussed. An idealized model is used, envisaging the ocean off Oregon to consist of homogeneous surface and deep layers separated by a pycnocline. The equations of motion are solved to yield the vertical velocity at the base of the surface layer. A comparison is made between the model and results inferred from hydrographic data. In the open ocean region qualitative agreement is observed between the wind stress curl and the depth of the surface layer. Geostrophic meridional transports relative to the 1000 decibar surface were computed and found to be of the order of the uncertainty. In the coastal upwelling region surface layer zonal transports were computed from the meridional component of the mean wind stress and compared with values inferred from oceanographic data. Coastal upwelling along the Oregon coast is clearly associated with the northerly (longshore) component of the wind stress.
