CZCS data show an annual winter phytoplankton maximum in January but with a large interannual variation. In sediment traps moored at ESTOC we observed winter sedimentation peaks at 1000m and 3000m depth occurring about 1 month later. We also observed sedimentation peaks in other seasons which probably result from material advecting into the region. CZCS data suggest that one possible source is the Cape Ghir upwelling filament off the north-west African coast.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50066||ISSN:||0143-1161||DOI:||10.1080/014311699212803||Source:||International Journal of Remote Sensing [ISSN 0143-1161], v. 20, p. 1419-1433|
