at figuring out the oceanic water intrusion in Kagoshima bay for each season by satellite SST(sea surface temperature) and chl-a(chlorophyll-a) images using the MODIS/Aqua ocean color sensor. It is relatively easy to find the oceanic water intrusion in winter by satellite SST images. However, it is difficult to find it during the summer season considering(More)
The periodic Kuroshio Current brings a water intrusion into Kagoshima bay in Japan, known as the 'Kyucho' phenomena. This oceanic water, influenced by the Coriolis Effect, intrudes at about 12cm/s. It is assumed that the water quality in Kagoshima Bay is affected by this phenomenon. However, even though the influence on the water quality by intermittent(More)
