Modeling the coastal ecosystem complex: present situation and challenges

To enhance numerical modeling of the coastal ecosystem complex (CEC), we reviewed the CEC and related concepts along with the current coastal ecosystem model framework in this study. We identified two model implementation paths from the initial objectives to numerical models: specific model building, and the use of existing model frameworks. As the CEC is still at the conceptual...

Implications of meso-scale eddies caused by frontal disturbances of the Kuroshio Current for anchovy recruitment

Hideaki Nakata Shingo Kimura Yuji Okazaki Akihide Kasai This paper discusses the implications of the meso-scale eddies, which are caused by frontal disturbances of the Kuroshio Current, for larval

Biological productivity of meso-scale eddies caused by frontal disturbances in the Kuroshio

Temporal and spatial changes in nutrient and chlorophyll distributions caused by frontal disturbances of the Kuroshio, a western boundary current in the Pacific Ocean, are presented. The regions of high nitrate and phosphate concentrations are associated with an eddy of positive vorticity which separates from the Kuroshio front within a few days of generation. The nutrients...
