Description:
Abstract:
"These data contain the "arrowmark" (AROMK) products generated each month by PFEL from the US Navy atmospheric pressure fields. Spatial coverage is for 15 positions along the North American west coast at each 3 degrees of Latitude from 21N to 60N."

Excerpted from PFEL Upwelling Data Products web site.

These data include the PFEL upwelling index, i.e. offshore Ekman transport.

Supplemental_Information:
Metadata Contact: Sara Breslow Location: West Coast of North America Spatial Resolution: Every 3 degrees of latitude Temporal Resolution: Six-Hourly; Daily; Monthly Access Notes: Current year files are available for the six-hourly data, so you only have to download the large historical data set once.

The PFEL web site notes: Special requests for these products can be obtained from PFEL for any point on the global ocean (1983-present) at temporal resolutions of 6-hourly, daily, and monthly. Special requests for these products can also be obtained from PFEL for any point on the northern hemisphere oceans (1967-present) at temporal resolutions of 6-hourly, daily, and monthly.
