Abstract During July 1977, horizontal transects of temperature and chlorophyll were taken from a depth of approximately 34 m in the central North Pacific Ocean and in the nearshore region off southern California. The variance spectra from both areas were similar. Spectral analysis suggests a small and constant variability between wavelengths of 45 m and 600 m. Cross-spectral computations show no coherence between chlorophyll and temperature in this band. From the viewpoint of an individual herbivore, this describes an environment which is physically and nutritionally undependable.
