dc.description.abstractBahía Culebra, at Gulf of Papagayo on the north Pacific coast of Costa Rica, is an area of seasonal upwelling where more intense cooling events may occur during some boreal winter weeks mainly. To study these extreme cool events, records of nine sea subsurface temperature stations from 1998 to 2010 were analyzed. Five events associated with extremely cool temperatures in this region were identified from these records and taken as study cases. Sea temperatures decreased about 8-9ºC during these events and occurred while cold fronts were present in the Caribbean, with strong trade wind conditions over Central America. These strong wind conditions may have favored the offshore displacement of the sea surface water. The axis of Bahía Culebra runs northeastsouthwest, a condition that favors and triggers cool water events, mainly because the displaced water is replaced by water from deeper levels. Rev. Biol.

dc.description.sponsorshipThis work was partially supported by the following projects of the Vicerrectoría de Investigación (Vice-rectory for Research), University of Costa Rica: 808-98-013, 808-B0- 092, 805-B0-065, 805-A9-532, 808-A9-180, 808-A9-070, 805-A8-606, 805-A7-002 and 808-B2-400, and CRN2050-IAI. The support given by Ecodesarrollo Papagayo has been decisive for the monitoring work carried out throughout these years. We also thank all the assistants that have cooperated with the program since it was set in motion. The Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología (CIMAR) of the University of Costa Rica has granted invaluable logistic support. Equally important has been the support of the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo, institution that has generously allowed the use of its facilities at Playa Panamá, Bahía Culebra. To Laura Zúñiga and Natalie Mora for their support in the original data base processing.es_ES
