Paper Abstract

The physical forcing and biological response are highly variable over multi-time scales ranging from biennial to interdecadal in the tropical Pacific Ocean. Satellite provides a systematic view of the coupled biological-physical variability over large spatial scales. Based on the satellite observation data from 1985 to 2011, we analyzed the multi-timescale variabilities of the physical ocean parameters (sea surface temperature, sea level anomaly, wind, rainfall) and the biological ocean parameter (chlorophyll-a) as well as the linkages between them over the tropical Pacific Ocean. The goal of this study was to investigate the multi-timescale variability and spatial-temporal association patterns of the physical-biological paramters in the tropical Pacific Ocean of the year from 1985 to 2011.
