    Warm and salinity waters enter the northern part of the pacific Subarctic gyre from the south as part of the warm-to-cold water transformation process. Along this pathway the water column progressively cooled and freshened in marginal seas. Stratification in the Pacific western Subarctic is maintained not only by the excessive precipitation, but also by the presence of this warm saline intermediate layer. This prominent mesothermal layer is associated with the halocline. The vertical profiles of salinity in the Kamchatka Current have a very sharp halocline at 100-200 m depth. The halocline off the southern Kuril Islands is much weaker and salinity decrease much more gradually. I show the cooling and freshening of the western Subarctic upper layer which occurred in the western Subarctic during 1988-1998. The main consequences of this thermohaline transition were westward shift of the Oyashio path, significant changes in the mid layers (200-1000 dbar) and restratification in the Subarctic waters. The influx of warm subtropical waters far northward to the Oyashio area and weak coastal Oyashio observed before this transition. This influx appears to have retreated in the early 1990s. Now mesothermal waters from the north penetrated southward and created strong stratification in the Oyashio area. This transition is associated with the reinforcement of the coastal Oyashio. These observations show that there was significant variability of the Oyashio and Kamchatka currents structure and their fresh-core eddies. Lateral scale of these eddies, as well as their depth of penetration, decreased, while salinity and destiny increased at mid and deep levels.

    World ocean data set is provided freely in the anonymous ftp directory at Scripps Institute of Oceanography by Drs. Reid and Mantyla, and was formatted for Web by NOAA/PMEL/EPIC. Additional variables, such as neutral density, have been computed and included in the EPIC files. Note: Arctic data is included in the Pacific category.Collected data include temperature, salinity, nutrient, oxygen, and silicates. There are 4714 files available for plotting and download. Depth ranges from 0 to 10892 meters deep. On-line access to the data and sectional cross plots is available. Access to download data from individual casts in either ASCII or netCDF format is included. A variety of plots of properties versus depth and property versus property plots can be generated on the fly and displayed to your screen. On-line access to the data are accessible via a number of data selection utilities. These utilities allow you to search the database and extract datasets meeting criteria such as geographic location, date and time, season of the year, and various other criteria.Questions should be directed to: Sarilee Anderson, Marine Life Research Group, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, CA 92093-0230, (619) 534-2057, email: sarilee@minerva.ucsd.edu.

    Parameter salinity, temperature and oxygen profiles Measurement Details The serial oceanographic observations were carried out bimonthly on 175 fixed stations from 22 lines (East Sea; 8, South Sea : 7, West Sea ; 6 lines, Korea-Japan line ; 1) in Korean waters, since 1961, in February, April, June, August, October, and December. The water temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen and meteorological factors were recorded as well as nutrients data in some years and months.

    Utilizing recently developed deep-sea mooring technology, we present the first interannual time series measurements of the ocean temperature, salinity, and velocity fields in the Bering Sea basin. These were made during spring and summer of 1992 and 1993 and late winter to summer of 1994, in 2195 m of water. Results show a weak background flow of ~5 cm/s with semidiurnal tides superimposed. Anticyclonic (clockwise) eddies pass by sporadically, inducing currents up to ~80 cm/s and depressing the isopycnals and isotherms up to ~200 m. The thermal structure in the upper 400 m shows a deep temperature maximum from warm Alaskan Stream inflows and a minimum above due to winter cooling. A sea surface cooling event was observed in the late winter of 1994, with cold water penetrating to ~120-m depth. Spring warming begins in late April to early May of each year, marked by the arrival of the 3.75°C isotherm. The local wind plays little role in forcing ocean currents at the site except at the inertial frequency.
