Vertical Distributions

Vertical distributions of temperature, salinity, density anomaly, nitrate, phosphate, silicate, nitrite and chlorophyll for the different transects are also available as gif images.

The vertical distribution of the physical properties are plotted from sea surface to 500 m depth. However, for nutrient and chlorophyll the distributions are only to 100, 150, 200 or 500m depending on each transect.  The aspect ratio is the same for all the distributions. For this reason, we have not showed the entire line P section, and we present the vertical distributions to station P15 (~700 km offshore).
