Abstract:

In order to consolidate existing oceanographic data relating to the Tsushima, Tsugaru and Soya Straits, various data sources have been investigated and the results compiled into the cruise inventory data base of Oceanographic Environmental Reference Service system of NAVOCEANO. As of this report, a total of 2,025 cruises by Japanese data collectors have been inventoried. The purpose of this study is to provide data directory information on the three Japanese sea straits to managers and planners, and a referral guidance for those who wish to access or retrieve data. For this purpose, in addition to compiling an OERS data base, the report provides an extensive descriptive oceanography and an annotated bibliography. It also includes three appendices giving cruise track charts by the Japan Hydrographic Office, the Japan Fisheries Agency, and the Japan Meteorological Agency. Author
