Patrones de distribución de las anomalías de temperatura superficial en el Mar Argentino. Su relación con la distribución de especies de interés comercial
MetadataShow full item record
The present research studies the spatial-temporal distribution patterns of the sea surface temperature anomalies (SSTA) and its relation with some of the most relevant commercial species in the Argentine Sea (SW Atlantic). The analysis is based on a monthly and weekly temporal series of the ATSM data and the sea surface temperature (SST) covering the period of December 1981 through November 2004, using the Reynolds/NCEP database as data source. The spatial scope of the study covers an area from the 33° S to 59° N, and includes the area within the coastal line and the 50 W, including the whole continental shelf, the shelf break zone, and the adjacent oceanic region. In order to assess the consistency of Reynolds/NCEP data for the purposes of this research a correlation and regression analysis was performed to compare these data with in situ data of TSM available from the SIAVO (INIDEP National Institute of Fisheries Research and Development databases). The correlation and regression val.....
