Development process of the Tsugaru gyre

In, Teiji*; Nakayama, Tomoharu*; Shima, Shigeki*; Ishikawa, Yoichi*; Awaji, Toshiyuki*; Kobayashi, Takuya ; Kawamura, Hideyuki  ; Togawa, Orihiko 

A clockwise circulation called the Tsugaru gyre is formed from summer to autumn after the Tsugaru Warm Current passes through the Tsugaru Strait into the Pacific Ocean. This study aims to clarify a formation process of the Tsugaru gyre by a numerical model and observational data. It is suggested that a separation of the Tsugaru gyre from the coast is related to a strong southward current near the coast resulted from a penetration of the Oyashio to the Tsugaru Warm Current.
