  • Direct observations of microscale turbulence and thermohaline structure in the Kuroshio Front 

    Nagai, Takeyoshi; Tandon, Amit; Yamazaki, Hidekatsu; Doubell, Mark J.; Gallager, Scott M. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-08-09)
    Direct observations of microstructure near the Kuroshio Front were conducted in August 2008 and October 2009. These show negative potential vorticity (PV) in the mixed layer south of the front, where directly measured ...
  • Spontaneous generation of near-inertial waves by the Kuroshio Front 

    Nagai, Takeyoshi; Tandon, Amit; Kunze, Eric; Mahadevan, Amala (American Meteorological Society, 2015-09)
    While near-inertial waves are known to be generated by atmospheric storms, recent observations in the Kuroshio Front find intense near-inertial internal-wave shear along sloping isopycnals, even during calm weather. Recent ...
