Description

(a) Predictions of the vertical velocity (m day-1) from the along-shelf winds (thin solid line, term 1 in (Eq 4)) and geostrophic transport (thick dash line, term 2 in (Eq 4)). (b) Comparison of the simulated vertical displacement distances of particles initialized in PRZ2 in Fig 2 (blue bars) with the theoretically predicted values from (Eq 5) (red bars). Each bar represents the domain (PRZ2) averaged vertical displacement of particles over each individual 10-day simulation period, with each season highlighted by the grey boxes.
