- n. Alternative form of kuroshio.
- n. a warm ocean current that flows northeastwardly off the coast of Japan into the northern Pacific ocean
“Kuroshio translates as Black Current, so-called because its waters carried the black-hulled ships of foreign nations, including those of the United States–Japan Expedition of 1854, commanded by Commodore Matthew Perry.”
“From October to April, for about half year, these glass eels drifting with the Kuroshio current arrive Yilan, Taiwan and prepare to swim to the upstream of some rivers, including the Lang-Yang river.”
“Therefore, we can see people in different countries catch glass eels along the way of the Kuroshio Current: Philippine, Taiwan, and Japan.”
“They then drift with the Kuroshio current toward north.”
“Such ocean models poorly represent the large-scale ocean current structure, not only because of the lack of resolution of narrow boundary currents such as the Gulf Stream and the Kuroshio, but also because of the high viscosity coefficients necessary for computational stability .”
“For more information on the physical and chemical characteristics of the Kuroshio Current ecosystem, see Terazaki, 1989.”
“Eddy-like motions have been observed in the coastal regions of the Kuroshio Front, which separates the Kuroshio Current from the East China Sea LME.”
“A short review on primary production in the Kuroshio.”
“There are indications that these eddies contribute to the retention and subsequent survival of sardine larvae transported by the Kuroshio Current.”
“GLOBEC and JGOFS are involved in studies of the ocean environment in relation to biological production in the Kuroshio/Oyashio transitional region.”
