The Atlantic coast of Portugal, to the south of Porto, was formed during the Holocene (Rodrigues and Dias 1989) by the accumulation of sand deposits derived principally from the north. This created a linear coast aligned at an angle of 15 degrees to the east of north. The main aim of this work was the study of the physical environment of the offshore system using AVHRR data to examine sea surface temperatures (SST) in the Aveiro region (Portugal), in order to identify, during 1999, the Portuguese coastal upwelling.
