In this keynote report for the 7th International Symposium on Kuroshio
Science, several topics are presented related to the impacts of shifting cultivation and oil palm plantations on the environment and ecosystem in Sarawak based on previous studies.
Our findings greatly extend the known distribution range of this species, and the extended distribution follows the Kuroshio
and Tsushima currents, suggesting that ocean currents may play a role in shaping oyster distribution.
These levels varied widely across the sampling area, however, which indicated the complexity of the currents at play--dominated by the mostly eastward flow of the mighty Kuroshio
Current, the Pacific Ocean's equivalent of the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic.
However, because of the strength of the Kuroshio
current, this pollution was spread through the entire Pacific Ocean.
The study was performed at a high-latitude location, Kochi, Japan (32[degrees]N), where the meandering of the warm Kuroshio
Current results in high fluctuations of local seawater temperatures.
JEEV MILKHA SINGH, seventh to Ian Poulter in better company in the Hong Kong Open on Sunday, turns his attention to the Japan Tour this week and could upset the locals in the Casio World Open at Kochi Kuroshio
current brings warm water and nutrients from the tropics into the ocean around Okinawa.
The northern records in the NW Pacific appeared associated with the warm waters of the Kuroshio
Current (Okamura 1912, Abe 1967).
The barge, Kuroshio
1, that the tugboat was towing to Myanmar on the night of the attack, will remain in Penang port.
Using a computer simulator, Ebbesmeyer thinks that the Kuroshio
current, a major Pacific Ocean current, will travel from
Depending on the time of year, coastal waters in the study area are also influenced by the mixing of different water masses coming from the plume of the Changjiang and the Taiwan Warm Current, an inshore branch of the Kuroshio
Current (Second Institute of Oceanography, unpubl.
A new unmanned exploration robot made by Team Kuroshio
, which will compete this year in the final round of an international race to precisely map the ocean floor, was unveiled Tuesday at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture.
