Rapid 20th-Century Increase in Coastal Upwelling off Northwest Africa

McGregor, Helen; Dima, M; Fischer, Helmut W.; Mulitza, Stefan

Description

Near-shore waters along the northwest African margin are characterized by coastal upwelling and represent one of the world's major upwelling regions. Sea surface temperature (SST) records from Moroccan sediment cores, extending back 2500 years, reveal anomalous and unprecedented cooling during the 20th century, which is consistent with increased upwelling. Upwelling-driven SSTs also vary out of phase with millennial-scale changes in Northern Hemisphere temperature anomalies (NHTAs) and show...[Show more]
