The J-SCOPE forecast system for Washington and Oregon coastal waters presents preliminary results for the 2013 upwelling season. The system predicts the timing of the spring transition, the cumulative upwelling index, sea-surface temperature (SST), primary production, chlorophyll stock, dissolved oxygen, and sardine habitat. All of these fields are reported as monthly averaged anomalies from regional climatologies (Venegas et al, 2008; Pierce et al, 2012; Crawford and Pena, 2013). These predicted quantities are key indicators for the California Current IEA report.
