Short summary
In this work, 25 years of daily satellite data on absolute dynamic topography (ADT) show that before 2002 Caribbean Water (CW) was less intrusive inside the Gulf of Mexico (GoM). Our results suggests that from 2003 onward, larger volumes of oligotrophic waters from the Caribbean Sea have invaded the western GoM and reduced mean surface Chl a concentrations. A direct comparison between the 1998–2002 and 2009–2014 periods indicates that the Chl a concentration has decreased significantly.
