Abstract:

The major goal of the project was to characterize variability of the Kuroshio east of Taiwan and to understand 1 how this variability is related to variability in the upstream region, where the North Equatorial Current bifurcates forming the northward-flowing Kuroshio and the southward-flowing Mindanao Current and 2 how westward-propagating mesoscale eddies that arrive along Taiwan from the North Pacific ocean interior shape Kuroshio variability. The projects analysis and data integrations will help establish the advective versus the eddy-driven contributions to Kuroshio variability east of Taiwan.
