Effect of the Earth's rotation on the circulation in regions of freshwater influence
Recent surveys in various regions of freshwater influence have shown considerably different flow patterns in each region. An analytical model including viscous effects and the Earth's rotation isExpand

Differential isotopic enrichment and half-life among tissues in Japanese temperate bass (Lateolabrax japonicus) juveniles: implications for analyzing migration
As a first step for field applications of stable isotope techniques to investigate the migration of Japanese temperate bass (Lateolabrax japonicus) (Perciformes) juveniles, we conducted a diet switchExpand

Selection of food sources by Ruditapes philippinarum and Mactra veneriformis (Bivalva: Mollusca) determined from stable isotope analysis
:  Carbon and nitrogen isotopic ratios in the body of the bivalves Ruditapes philippinarum and Mactra veneriformis were measured to estimate the role of the bivalves in the ecosystem in an estuary.Expand

Biological productivity of meso-scale eddies caused by frontal disturbances in the Kuroshio
Temporal and spatial changes in nutrient and chlorophyll distributions caused by frontal disturbances of the Kuroshio, a western boundary current in the Pacific Ocean, are presented. The regions ofExpand

Salt-wedge intrusion of seawater and its implication for phytoplankton dynamics in the Yura Estuary, Japan
We monitored hydrographic and biological conditions in the Yura Estuary and its coastal area from April 2006 to March 2008. Hydrographic conditions changed seasonally, and were mainly determined byExpand

Entrainment of coastal water into a frontal eddy of the Kuroshio and its biological significance
The Pacific coastal areas of Japanese Island are major spawning grounds of various fishes. It is considered that large amount of eggs and larvae are dragged into the Kuroshio front so that theExpand
