Abstract

The aim of the SRFME Biophysical Oceanography project is to characterize the continental shelf/slope pelagic ecosystem off southwestern WA: its productivity and dynamics, and the physical, chemical and biological factors driving variability along dominant spatial and temporal scales. To achieve this, we undertook monthly sampling from 2002 – 2004 along an onshore-offshore transect off Two Rocks from nearshore to the outer continental shelf (100 m water depth), which we extended quarterly to offshore waters (1000 m depth). Cruise sampling was combined with satellite observations of sea-surface temperature (SST), ocean colour and altimetry, and subsurface measurements of currents and temperature from moorings.
