Fifty years of the 137°E repeat hydrographic section in the western North Pacific Ocean

The 137°E repeat hydrographic section of the Japan Meteorological Agency across the western North Pacific was initiated in 1967 as part of the Cooperative Study of the Kuroshio and Adjacent Regions and has been continued biannually in winter and summer. The publicly available data from the section have been widely used to reveal seasonal to decadal variations and long-term...

The formation of the ocean’s anthropogenic carbon reservoir

The shallow overturning circulation of the oceans transports heat from the tropics to the mid-latitudes. This overturning also influences the uptake and storage of anthropogenic carbon (Cant). We demonstrate this by quantifying the relative importance of ocean thermodynamics, circulation and biogeochemistry in a global biochemistry and circulation model. Almost 2/3 of the Cant...

Comparison of strict- and mild-blood pressure control in elderly hypertensive patients: a per-protocol analysis of JATOS

We performed a per-protocol analysis of the Japanese Trial to Assess Optimal Systolic Blood Pressure in Elderly Hypertensive Patients (JATOS) to evaluate the optimal target blood pressure (BP) in elderly hypertensive patients. In JATOS, conducted in elderly (65–85 years) hypertensive patients treated with efonidipine hydrochloride, there were no differences between the strict...

Photosynthetic features and primary productivity of phytoplankton in the Oyashio and Kuroshio–Oyashio transition regions of the northwest Pacific

Diel and seasonal changes in the photosynthetic physiology of phytoplankton and primary productivity were investigated during 2005, together with community composition in the Oyashio (OY) and Kuroshio–Oyashio transition (TR) regions of the northwest Pacific. In both regions, diel changes in the maximum photosynthetic rate (P*max) and the light saturation index (Ek) in the...
