Article
Full-text available
Upwelling in the California Current System (CCS) sustains a productive ecosystem and is mediated by alongshore, equatorward wind stress. A decades-old hypothesis proposes that global warming will accelerate these upwelling-favorable winds. Recent analyses provide empirical support for upwelling intensification in the poleward portion of the CCS. Ho...
Article
Full-text available
The air-sea CO2 fluxes in eastern boundary up-welling systems (EBUSs) vary strongly in time and space, with some of the highest flux densities globally. The processes controlling this variability have not yet been investigated consistently across all four major EBUSs, i.e., the California (CalCS), Humboldt (HumCS), Canary (CanCS), and Benguela (Ben...

Full-text available
The California Current System (CCS) sustains economically valuable fisheries and is particularly vulnerable to ocean acidification, due to the natural upwelling of corrosive waters that affect ecosystem function. Marine resource managers in the CCS could benefit from advanced knowledge of ocean acidity on multiyear timescales. We use a novel suite...

Purpose of Review We review how phytoplankton abundance may be responding to the increase in stratification associated with anthropogenic climate change, providing context on the utility of remote sensing datasets and Earth system model output to understand these perturbations. Recent Findings Assessing disruption in the ocean biosphere using remo...
Article
Full-text available
We use a statistical emulation technique to construct synthetic ensembles of global and regional sea‐air carbon dioxide (CO2) flux from four observation‐based products over 1985–2014. Much like ensembles of Earth system models that are constructed by perturbing their initial conditions, our synthetic ensemble members exhibit different phasing of in...

Plain Language Summary The Southern Ocean is the only place in the world where ocean currents circle the globe without hitting land. Here, some of the strongest winds on the planet force water to flow west‐to‐east around Antarctica and bring water from kilometers deep up to the surface. These waters have traversed the deep ocean for centuries, and...
Article
Full-text available
The California Current System (CCS) sustains economically valuable fisheries and is particularly vulnerable to ocean acidification, due to its natural upwelling of carbon-enriched waters that generate corrosive conditions for local ecosystems. Here we use a novel suite of retrospective, initialized ensemble forecasts with an Earth system model (ESM...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Understanding the origins of nutrients, e.g., nitrate, in ocean water is essential to develop an effective mariculture technique for free-floating macroalgae, which presents a potential solution to provide an alternative source of domestic renewable fuels to help reduce carbon emissions from automobiles. To study this problem, scientists simulate l...
