By T.H. Pearson, Harold Barnes

The ever expanding curiosity in paintings in oceanography and marine biology and its relevance to international environmental concerns creates a requirement for authoritative experiences summarising the result of fresh research.Oceanography and Marine Biology: an Annual evaluate has catered for this call for given that its starting place, by means of the overdue Harold Barnes, greater than 35 years in the past. Its pursuits are to contemplate, every year, simple components of marine learn, returning to them whilst acceptable in destiny volumes; to house matters of distinctive and topical significance; and so as to add new ones as they come up. The beneficial reception accorded to the entire volumes exhibits that the sequence is enjoyable a really genuine want: either experiences and revenues were pleasant. The sequence is a necessary reference textual content for examine employees and scholars in all fields of marine technological know-how and similar topics, and unearths a spot in not just the libraries of marine stations and institutes but additionally universities. it truly is regularly one of the optimum score impression components for the marine biology classification of the quotation indices compiled via the Institute for clinical schooling.

1 m·s -1 . The geostrophic velocity sections in Figure 30 are in general agreement with these measured results. When the Kuroshio flows over the continental slope a weak countercurrent seems to develop under the Kuroshio (Fig 30a). Lagrangian measurements with neutrally buoyant floats off Shikoku by Worthington & Kawai (1972) showed the same results. Deep-current meter observations by Taft (1978) at stations off Kyushu, Shikoku, and Kii Peninsula of various record lengths between July and September 1971 also yielded similar characteristics of the mean currents.

SHUMPU MARU). velocity may possibly cause the formation of the small meander off southern Kyushu. Because the Kuroshio flows close to Cape Shionomisaki during the straight path mode and it leaves the continental slope there in the meander mode, the continuous sea level data from the two tidal stations on both faces of the Cape should also reflect such bimodal characteristics (Moriyasu, 1961). Several investigations (see Kawabe, 1980) found that the sea level west of the Cape was significantly higher than that east of the Cape when the Kuroshio takes its straight path, whereas no appreciable difference is seen when the Kuroshio is in its meander state.
