The January-initialized reforecast climatology highlight the seasonal cycle in bottom oxygen concentration with lower oxygen in the summer months.
January-initialized model reforecast climatology spanning 2009 - 2017 for bottom oxygen (ml/l) of the model domain. Each panel details a two month average; some months are omitted due to low sample size. The 200 meter isobath (the shelf break) is highlighted for reference.
January-initialized model reforecast climatology spanning 2009 - 2017 for oxygen (umol/kg) from two cross sections (longitude vs depth) from the Washington shelf (Cape Elizabeth ~47 N) (left) and Oregon shelf (Heceta Bank ~44N) (right). The cross sections are averaged over the upwelling season (May - August).
