ブッソル海峡周辺の放射性炭素の鉛直分布がはじめて明らかになった。ブッソル海峡の水深0-400mで放射性炭素濃度がほぼ一定であることから、当該海域では等密度混合を越えるような大きな潮汐混合が起こっていることが明らかとなった。放射性炭素濃度と海水の密度の分布からオホーツク海中層水がオホーツク海-太平洋間の海水交換に大きな役割を持つこと、深層水はブッソル海峡を通過して両海域でよく混合していることがわかった。さらに各観測点における核実験由来の放射性炭素存在量の見積もりから、オホーツク海-太平洋間の海水交換量が本質的には小さいかもしれないことが示唆された。

Vertical profiles for radiocarbon were described around the Bussol' Strait for the first time. The uniformity of radiocarbon concentration at 0-400 m depth in the Bussol' Strait was observed, and expected that diapycnal mixing occurs by tide between the sub-surface water around the Bussol' Strait and the surface water in the Bussol' Strait. The Okhotsk-Pacific cross-sections through the Bussol' Strait of radiocarbon concentration and density suggested the intermediate water in the Sea of Okhotsk has the role of the Okhotsk-Pacific water exchange, and the deep water between the Sea of Okhotsk and the Pacific Ocean is mixed well rapidly through the Bussol' Strait. Using estimation of bomb produced C-14 inventories in each water column, it was suggested the quantities of the Okhotsk-Pacific water exchange may be essentially small.
