Walleye pollock (Gadus chalcogramma) caught in the Korean fishing area dramatically decreased in the late 1980s. To investigate the potential impact of the late 1980s climate regime shift on the collapse of the pollock catch, we developed a three-dimensional hydrodynamic model with data assimilation and a particle tracking model. Data-assimilated r...

It is vital to improve estimations of long-term trends in global and regional sea level rise to help mitigate and adapt to climate change. Satellite altimetry data have been widely used for this purpose; however, data collected in regions with strong tidalmotions often suffer from significant aliasing effects unless they are sufficiently corrected...

Full-text available
Global climate models (GCMs) have limited capacity in simulating spatially non-uniform sea-level rise owing to their coarse resolutions and absence of tides in the marginal seas. Here, regional ocean climate models (RCMs) that consider tides were used to address these limitations in the Northwest Pacific marginal seas through dynamical downscaling....
Article
We investigated spatial relationships between barotropic tidal currents and tides (i.e., tidal elevations) in the tidally predominant Yellow and East China Seas and Korea Strait (YESKS) continental shelf region to understand which tidal current and tide (TCE) characteristics underpin essential insights for maritime search, rescue and recovery opera...

We investigated the strengthened ocean surface heat flux at Ieodo Ocean Research Station (Ieodo ORS) during the passage of Typhoon Lingling. On September 6, 2019, when Typhoon Lingling approached the Ieodo ORS, we observed a dramatic drop in the sea surface temperature (SST) of 5.0 °C along with intense turbulent mixing. Although the decline of the...

For open ocean environments, it is rare to find continuous, simultaneous air and sea observation records due to the challenges of instrument installation and maintenance. The Ieodo Ocean Research Station (Ieodo ORS), a remote ocean site located in the northern East China Sea with its harsh oceanic and atmospheric environment, provides a platform fo...

The solar annual (Sa) and semiannual (Ssa) tides account for much of the non-uniform annual and seasonal variability observed in sea levels. These non-equilibrium tides depend on atmospheric variations, forced by changes in the Sun's distance and declination, as well as on hydrographic conditions. Here we employ tidal harmonic analyses to calculate...

The Yellow and East China Seas are contained in a shallow, marginal seas surrounded by mainland China to the west and Korea and Japan to the east. More than 75% of the area of this region is shallower than 100 m; thus, it is among the most productive continental shelf regions in the world. Heo et al. (2012) showed that warming in the East China and...

Accurate tidal height data for the seas around Antarctica are much needed, given the crucial role of these tides in the regional and global ocean, marine cryosphere, and climate processes. However, obtaining long-term sea level records for traditional tidal predictions is extremely difficult around ice-affected coasts. This study evaluates the abil...

Daily tidal water level variations are a key control on shore ecology, on access to marine environments via ports, jetties, and wharves, on drainage links between the ocean and coastal hydrosystems such as lagoons and estuaries, and on the duration and frequency of opportunities to access the intertidal zone for recreation and food harvesting purpo...

Monthly mean sea-levels have annual maxima in August in the northeast Asian marginal seas (NEAMS). Based on satellite altimetry data, the rising rate of the August NEAMS sea-level (ANS, 4.2 mm∙yr−1) is greater than those of the NEAMS (3.6 mm∙yr−1) and global (3.4 mm∙yr−1) annual mean sea-levels. Thus, the interannual variations of ANS are classifie...

Abstract. In a world of increasing coastal inundation hazards, an understanding of daily through to monthly tidal envelope characteristics is fundamental to resilient coastal management and development practices. For decades, scientists have described and compared daily tidal forms around the world’s coasts based on the four main tidal amplitudes....

The Yellow Sea is one of the most productive continental shelves in the world. This large marine ecosystem is experiencing an epochal change in water temperature, stratification, nutrients, and subsequently in ecological diversity. Research-oriented monitoring of these changes requires a sustainable, multi-disciplinary approach. For this purpose, t...

Anthropogenic Pb emitted from East Asia, particularly China, is often long-range transported to the east by the prevailing westerlies. To characterize the geographical properties of varying atmospheric Pb concentrations by transboundary and domestic source(s)-related Pb in Korea, closely adjacent to China, the Al and Pb concentrations and the stabl...

We grouped the names attributed to the seas surrounding the Korean Peninsula in maps published in two major Korean ocean and fisheries science journals over the period from 1998 to 2017: the Journal of the Korean Society of Oceanography (The Sea) and the Korean Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Science (KFAS). The names attributed to these seas in m...

On 16 February 1637, Qing troops landed on Ganghwa Island and occupied Ganghwa Castle. According to the conventional narrative, a few Joseon warships bravely fought in vain to deter the enemy from crossing the shallow, narrow Yeomha Waterway while the main fleet cowardly ran away. A close investigation of firsthand accounts of this battle, however,...

The interannual variation of surface ocean currents can be as large as seasonal variation in the Japan/East Sea (JES). To identify the major factors that cause such interannual variability of surface ocean circulation in the JES, surface circulation was simulated from 1998 to 2009 using a three-dimensional model. Contributions of atmospheric forcin...
