    Upwelling is the movement of deep cold ocean water to the
    surface. It brings nutrient rich waters to surface.It
    effects food chains by bringing more food to the surface so
    organisms in that area have more food. Plants using these
    nutrients will grow, the herbivore has food, and the small
    and large carnivores also will eat.
