A synoptic analysis of the temperature field off the California coast for the surface, 10-meter and 100-meter level is provided for the years 1958-1959. Data used are from CCOFI cruises. These analyses are shown to be adequate for detecting probable upwelling areas. The areas of persistent upwelling are at 29 N, 31 N and 33 N adjacent to the California coast. There appears to be a preference for a steep gradient of the sea floor in these areas. The onset and decay of upwelling appears to depend on latitudinal position of the 11 C isotherm at 100 meters.
