However, some species are regularly advected offshore, entrained into the Gulf Stream, and exported northwards (e.
1991, Dame 1996), and the limiting nature of advected food delivery to bivalves relative to their consumption is well founded in the literature (Wildish & Kristmanson 1979, Incze et al.
Into this low pressure area, moisture is advected to support the convective process.
1998), recent observations demonstrate that patches of blue crab larvae maintain a well defined structure, even when advected to areas of the continental shelf where circulation patterns favor dissipation (Natunewicz et al.

Some cooler air was advected into the southern half.
It is possible that prey in the water column is advected toward them along the canyon wall (Isaacs and Schwartzlose, 1965; Genin et al.
The cause for this departure from the understood norm is that with anticyclonic cores that much further south, the input of warm sub-tropical air to intensify vortex development is increased while compensatory drive of advected polar air to accelerate undercutting the warmer air increase commensurately.

We have also seen tropical cyclones active in latitudes from where moist maritime air should be advected towards the daytime heat of our south and west.
Our southern African geography is conducive to weather patterns and resultant airflows which are fed on the lower levels with maritime air being advected towards the heated interior and also tapping the fringes, at least, of the Congo airmass.
