Differences in the response times of different biogeochemical tracers to upper ocean forcing processes can lead to substantial differences in their patterns of variability. An idealized tracer with a steep vertical concentration gradient is modeled in a flow field representative of an upper ocean front. The surface distribution of the tracer is studied as a function of its response or restoration time scale.
