Mixing and Water Mass Modification in the East Asian Marginal Seas

February 13, 2017
W601 in Research Institute for Applied Mechanics, Kyushu University (Kasuga, Fukuoka, Japan)

 Water mass modification as a result of oceanic mixing is one of important factors controlling biogeochemical conditions in the ocean. Marginal seas in the East Asia such as the Yellow, East China and Japan/East Seas are rapidly changing due to natural and anthropogenic multi-timescale variations. The aim of this workshop is to promote studies on the mixing and water mass modification processes in the East Asian area through exchange scientific information. We welcome not only observational and modeling studies about physical processes of the water mass modification, but also about mixing effects on the biogeochemical conditions in the oceans.
