Abstract

The Kuroshio axes south of Japan was detected by [1] every 10 days from October 1992 to December 2000 from the sea-surface velocity field obtained by combining satellite altimeter and sea-surface drifter data. The axes was obtained by tracking the maximum current speed position of respective points in the Kuroshio. That axes clearly expresses the effect of the bottom topography; three modes were observed when the Kuroshio ran over the Izu Ridge. The axis was very stable to the south of Tosa-bae,' off the Kii Channel.
