Variations: Frontiers in western boundary current research

Western boundary current regions are often studied for their intensity of air-sea interaction and mesoscale variability, yet research addressing the implications of these characteristics for biogeochemical cycling has lagged behind. This latest edition of Variations, joint with US OCB, features articles discussing some of the most pressing research questions.
