Short summary
This paper presents results from a year-long study of a kelp forest offshore of Pacific Grove, California. We use tools and techniques from chemistry to study the kelp forest. We find very large chemical variability in the kelp forest, primarily between the surface of the water and the bottom of the forest. There are many reasons for this variability; we conclude that both regional upwelling and kelp growth are responsible for contributing to this variability.
