THE 1997-98 EL NIŅO ATLAS OF OCEANOGRAPHIC CONDITIONS ALONG THE WEST COAST OF NORTH AMERICA

Time-Distance Distributions

We also present the time-distance plots of the eight hydrographic variables at 3 isobaric and 3 isopycnal levels. We have chosen these levels as we believe the captured the most important features during this event. We show a series of 5 panels displaying a parameter through time from January 1997 to January 1999.   Transects are Line 90, Line 80,
Line 67 (CalCOFi), NH Line (Oregon), and Line P (British Columbia).  Click on one of the links in the table below to access the time-distance plots.
