Tree ring data has helped scientists better understand variations in coastal upwellng and their effect on the growth and reproduction of marine life.

A new study by researchers at the University of Texas at Austin that looked at short-term reductions in marine animal growth and reproduction off the California coast finds these decreases may be linked to increasing variability in the strength of upwelling ocean currents. Coastal upwelling is a phe...
