Descrizione libro East-West Center Press, Honolulu, HI, 1970. Hardcover. x, 614 p. Authors and Participants listed at the end. Withdrawn papers also listed. The papers presente din this collection were prepared for a Cooperationve Study of the Kuroship Symposium held in 1968. From Wikipedia: "The Kuroshio ( "Black Tide") is a north-flowing ocean current on the west side of the North Pacific Ocean. It is similar to the Gulf Stream in the North Atlantic and is part of the North Pacific ocean gyre. Like the Gulf stream, it is a strong western boundary current. It begins off the east coast of Taiwan and flows northeastward past Japan, where it merges with the easterly drift of the North Pacific Current. It is analogous to the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic Ocean, transporting warm, tropical water northward toward the polar region. It is sometimes known as the Black Stream the English translation of kuroshio and an allusion to the deep blue of its water and also as the "Japan Current". The path of Kuroshio south of Japan is reported every day. Its counterparts are the North Pacific Current to the north, the California Current to the east, and the North Equatorial Current to the south. The warm waters of the Kuroshio Current sustain the coral reefs of Japan, the northernmost coral reefs in the world. The branch into the Sea of Japan is called Tsushima Current. The Japan Current is responsible for the mild weather experienced around Alaska's southern coast and in British Columbia. Western boundary currents transport organisms long distances rapidly and a variety of commercially important marine organisms migrate in these currents in the course of completing their lives. Subtropical gyres occupy a large fraction of the world's ocean and are more productive than originally thought. In addition, their fixation of carbon dioxide is an important factor in the global budget for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Satellite images of the Kuroshio Current illustrates how the current path meanders and forms isolated rings or eddies on the order of 100 300 km. Eddies retain their unique form for several months and have their own biological characteristics that depend on where they form. If the eddies are formed between the current and coastline of Japan, they may impinge on the continental shelf; their high kinetic energy has the effect of drawing large volumes of water off the shelf on one side of the ring, while adding water to the other side. The eddies size and strength decline with distance from major ocean currents. The amount of energy decreases from the rings associated with the major currents and down to eddies remote from those currents. Cyclonic eddies have the potential to cause upwelling that would affect the global primary-production budget. Upwelling brings cold, nutrient-rich water to the surface resulting in an increase in productivity. The biological consequences for young fish populations that inhabit the shelf are quite large." Fair. No dust jacket. Ex-library. Usual library markings. Rear board weak and strengthened with glue. Cover has some wear and soiling. Small tear to cloth at top of front board. First edition.
