Abstract

Correlation between the Kuroshio and coastal sea level south of Japan is examined during a non-large meander period using the altimetry and tide gauge data after removing the steric height component. The sea level varies uniformly in a region bounded by the coast and the mean Kuroshio axis, which stretches for several hundreds kilometers along the coast. These variations are related with the Kuroshio velocity, as coastal sea level decreases (or increases) when the Kuroshio is faster (or slower).
