Observations of temperature and salinity distributions across the Brazil-Malvinas Confluence reveal the importance of small-scale mixing processes for water mass modification.
Phytoplankton patches at an ocean front in the California Current System are found to originate from different coastal upwelling pulses.
Bio-Argo floats and satellite altimeter data reveal that upwelling caused by confluent flow on the warm side of ocean fronts increases phytoplankton carbon and chlorophyll.
Virtual particles released in the Labrador Current revealed that the westward penetration of the current into the shelf seas is inhibited by warm core rings emanating from the Gulf Stream.
A combination of the weakened Kuroshio in the Tokara Strait and an increase in anticyclonic eddies led to the slowdown of the Ryukyu Current from 1993 to 2018.
Autonomous float data reveal that mergers of two eddies, known to have spiraling subducting water surrounding each other, happens more frequently than previously thought.
A new study reveals that long-lived warm core rings found in the “Ring Corridor”, a narrow path north of the Gulf Stream, have two different formation mechanisms.
The waters of the Kuroshio Current in the northwestern Pacific Ocean transport heat, salt, and organic and inorganic matter from south to north, shaping the ocean ecosystem.
