Highlights

Event-scale upwelling indices have been neglected in marine ecology.

April-July events are of highest Intensity and nutrient input, and lowest SST.

Wind alone does not explain variability in lower trophic level productivity.

Biological productivity is highest during moderately strong upwelling.
