80-1 Hydrographic observations off Savannah and Brunswick, Georgia (March, May, and September, 1977 and January 1978)
Abstract: Seasonal onshore-offshore sections were run in March, May and September 1977 and January 1978 off Savannah and Brunswick, Georgia. In each instance upwelling was observed at the shelf break with significant nutrient fluxes into the surface and/or shelf waters. There are indications that eddies may have been responsible for some of these observations.
