Western Boundary Currents

(2022) Coastal Sea Level forced by Western Boundary Currents' paths? The example of the Gulf Stream and of the Kuroshio.

Presentation at Ocean Sciences Meeting 2022.

Western boundary circulation and coastal sea-level variability in Northern Hemisphere oceans

The Gulf Stream and the Kuroshio are major currents of the North Atlantic and North Pacific, respectively. They transport warm water northward and are key components of the Earth climate system. For this study, we looked at how they affect the sea level of the coasts of Japan, the USA and Canada. We found that the inshore sea level co-varies with the north-to-south shifts of the Gulf Stream and Kuroshio. In the paper, we discuss the physical mechanisms that could explain the agreement.
