The Kuroshio Current

Location of PX44, which is used to compute the Kuroshio Current velocity at 22°N, overlaid on the (left) Mean Dynamic Topography, and (right) Mean Geostrophic Velocity from the MDT_CNES-CLS09 climatology.


Mean Kuroshio Current velocity (22°N)

Baroclinic geostrophic velocity accross PX44 based on preliminary analysis of the XBT data.

The XBT data along PX44 can be obtained here>>



The Mean Dynamic Topography and Mean Geostrophic Velocity fields are from the MDT_CNES-CLS09 climatology produced by CLS Space Oceanography Division and distributed by AVISO, with support from CNES.
