This site from Exploring Earth features an animation of upwelling in a coastal environment. It shows how onshore winds blowing along a coastline push surface water, which, when combined with the Coriolis effect, moves the water away from the coast. As surface water moves outward, cold, plankton-rich water from the ocean bottom moves toward the coast and rises to replace the displaced surface water.
