Sub-seasonal to interannual variations of sea surface temperature, salinity, oxygen anomaly, and transmissivity in Santa Monica Bay, California from 1987 to 1997

0

While the basic hydrographic and circulation pattern of Santa Monica Bay (SMB) are relatively well known, the seasonal and interannual variations of these patterns are not well established nor are the mechanisms behind them well understood. We analyzed 10 years of hydrographic observations (1987–1997) in the surface layer of SMB off southern California to establish the mean seasonal cycle and to deduce patterns of sub-seasonal to interannual variability of sea surface temperature, salinity, oxygen anomaly (the difference between oxygen concentration and its solubility), and transmissivity using empirical orthogonal functions and time-lagged cross-correlation methods.
