País: Costa Rica

The Thermal Dome of Costa Rica (the Dome) is an extensive marine region in the Eastern Tropical Pacific (ETP), off the west coast of Central America. Currents and winds cause nutrient rich cold waters from deep zones to draw near the surface generating a high primary productivity, which maintains a dynamic food web in the surrounding area.
