Pagination or Media Count:
A case of cold air outbreak over the Kuroshio region is simulated over an 8 day period using a state-of-the-art coupled atmosphere-ocean forecast model that includes assimilation of observations. During the event, maximum winds reach 20 ms in agreement with observations and the air temperature drops over 10 deg C, resulting in surface heat fluxes in excess of 1000 Wm sq.
