Recent advances in ocean-circulation research on the Yellow Sea and East China Sea shelves
AbstractRecent advances in ocean-circulation research on the Yellow Sea and East China Sea shelves are summarized. Observations using acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs) suggest that theExpand

Seasonal variability in the Tsushima Warm Current, Tsushima-Korea Strait
To study seasonal variability in the Tsushima Warm Current, flowing to the northeast in the Tsushima-Korea Strait, ADCP surveys were undertaken about every 2 months from 1990 to 1991. The survey lineExpand

Selective transport of microplastics and mesoplastics by drifting in coastal waters.
The quantity and size distributions of small plastic fragments in the Seto Inland Sea, Japan were investigated using field surveys and a numerical particle-tracking model. The model was used toExpand

On the origin of the Tsushima Warm Current and its seasonality
Abstract There are two different schools of thought with regard to the origin of the Tsushima Warm Current. One school of thought believes that it comes from the Taiwan Strait, while the otherExpand

Freshwater and temperature transports through the Tsushima-Korea Straits
[1] Using acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) and conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) data sets obtained from 1991 to 1993, volume, freshwater, and temperature transports through theExpand

East Asian seas: A hot spot of pelagic microplastics.
To investigate concentrations of pelagic micro- (<5mm in size) and mesoplastics (>5mm) in the East Asian seas around Japan, field surveys using two vessels were conducted concurrently in summer 2014.Expand

Microplastics in the Southern Ocean.
A field survey to collect microplastics with sizes <5mm was conducted in the Southern Ocean in 2016. We performed five net-tows and collected 44 pieces of plastic. Total particle counts of the entireExpand

The Taiwan-Tsushima Warm Current System: Its Path and the Transformation of the Water Mass in the East China Sea
Using a temperature data set from 1961 to 1990, we estimated the monthly distribution of the vertically integrated heat content in the East China Sea. We then drew the monthly map of the horizontalExpand
