Abstract:

The western boundary region of the North Pacific Ocean is unique in that it is porous. Massive exchanges between the Pacific and the marginal seas occur through gaps in the island chain that bounds the open basin. The long-term goal of the work is to understand the dynamics of these exchanges and their consequences in terms of ocean variability.
