Interaction between the East China Sea Kuroshio and the Ryukyu Current as revealed by the self ‐ organizing map

[1] The self‐organizing map (SOM) is used to study the linkage between the two western boundary currents, the Kuroshio Current and the Ryukyu Current, through the Kerama Gap. Four coherent ocean current patterns, extracted from a numerical model output for the Kerama Gap area, are used to describe the variability of the Kuroshio current axis and the mesoscale eddies in the Ryukyu Current system. The temporal evolution of these four patterns shows a robust cycle with an average period of 120… CONTINUE READING
