Ocean upwelling becoming more intense with climate change, new Farallon Institute research reveals

July 4, 2014

An international team of scientists, led by Farallon Institute President Dr. Bill Sydeman, has shown that winds that cause coastal upwelling off the west coasts of North and South America and southern Africa have increased over the past 60 years, indicating a global pattern of change.  The study was published in the journal Science; additional information can be found in the press release and on the Farallon Institute Pelican Brief blog.
