The California coastal jet has been examined in several studies. It is a persistent feature of the summertime wind pattern from southern Oregon to Point Conception in southern California. It is a low-level feature brought about by the combination of subsidence on the eastern side of the North Pacific high and the juxtaposition of hot temperatures over land and a cool marine layer over upwelled waters of the California current. The core of the jet is typically located within the temperature inversion at the top of the marine layer, although varying degrees of downward coupling result in extensions of high winds to the surface.
