Circulation of nutrients in the coastal zone

Circulation of nutrients from the sea bottom to the upper surface, occurs in the coastal regions by two processes

Upwelling

Where the winds cause the surface waters to be blown offshore, which are replaced then by the cold nutrients rich waters from the deep.

Outwelling

Where the sea is enriched by nutrient rich estuarine waters entering it.
