Abstract

The primary physical mechanisms influencing the mesoscale pigment distribution in Gulf Stream meanders observed in this study are 1) outcropping of nutrient-bearing strata in the spring, 2) meander-induced upwelling of nutrients along sloping isopycnals, and 3) Gulf Stream-ring interactions. -from Authors
