Upper panel above shows alongshore wind stress (blue is upwelling-favorable). Lower panel shows wind stress cumulative from the spring transition and ending with the fall transition, for this year (blue line). Also shown on the lower panel are the means and standard deviations for the 1985-2008 period (black lines). Ascii data file of wind stress and cumulative wind stress for this year.
