Interdecadal decrease of the Oyashio transport on the continental slope off the southeastern coast of Hokkaido, Japan
We investigated the interdecadal trend of Oyashio velocity and transport during 1993–2011 based mainly on linear trend analysis of altimetry and in situ temperature-salinity data from a monitoringExpand
