Ocean boundary current systems are key components of the climate system, are home to highly productive ecosystems, and have numerous societal impacts. Establishment of a global network of boundary current observing systems is a critical part of ongoing development of the Global Ocean Observing System. The characteristics of boundary current systems are reviewed, focusing on Cited by: 8. Instabilities of an eastern boundary current with and without Large-scale Flow Influence This thesis studies the stability of an eastern boundary current with and without the large-scale flow influence in an idealized framework represented by barotropic quasi-geostrophic dynamics.

Boundary currents are ocean currents with dynamics determined by the presence of a coastline, and are categorised into two distinct categories: western boundary currents and eastern boundary currents. Eastern boundary currents Eastern boundary currents are relatively shallow, broad and slow-flowing. They are found on the eastern side of oceanic basins.

The second experiment, which investigates the effect of annual wind forcing on a flat bottom, accurately portrays classical eastern boundary current features as well as unique NCCS features associated with a large embayment (i.e., the Gulf of Cadiz), poleward spreading of Mediterranean Outflow, and the generation of : Antonio S.

GLOBEC program in the California Current System developed from initial discussions held at a small. The deep eastern boundary current there is shown to be driven by a traditional interior balance together with a narrow boundary layer scale near the eastern boundary, which exists only when stratification and topography are both included.
A simplified semianalytical vorticity model is developed for the deep eastern boundary : Xiaoting Yang, Eli Tziperman, Kevin Speer. Quiñones R. () Eastern Boundary Current Systems. In: Liu KK., Atkinson L., Quiñones R., Talaue-McManus L. (eds) Carbon and Nutrient Fluxes in Continental Margins.
Global Cited by: The Leeuwin Current is the eastern boundary current for the south Indian Eastern boundary current program book, and is located off Western Australia. The current was identified prior tobut named only in following the start of intensive observations (Cresswell & Golding, ).
Environmental inputs to fishery population models for eastern boundary current regions. In: G.D. Sharp (ed.) Workshop on the Effects of Environmental Variation on the survival of Larval Pelagic Fishes, Lima, Peru, 20 Apr May, Eastern boundary currents, which flow from high latitudes to the equator, are slower, shallower, and wider than western boundary currents.
Similar to the return flow in a household heating system, these currents transport colder waters into the tropics, at about 3 to 7 kilometers per day, where they are heated and transported poleward in the western boundary currents. The Kuroshio (black stream in Japanese, where shio means current) arises at the western boundary where the westward flow of the NEC splits at about 15°N into northward and southward boundary currents: the Kuroshio and Mindanao Current, respectively (Figures and ).
The Kuroshio continues northward, turns to follow the south coast of Japan, then separates and flows out to the mid. GEOL Exam 2- Ch. 7 Ocean Circulation. STUDY. PLAY. What are the two main types of ocean currents. Western boundary current Eastern boundary current Northern or Southern boundary current Equatorial current It is the wakening of this circulation that accompanies an El Nino event.
(text book definition) • The Walker circulation cell. One particularly powerful western boundary current is the Gulf Stream. The Gulf Stream, paired with the eastern boundary Canary Current, flanks the North Atlantic gyre.
The Gulf Stream, also called the North Atlantic Drift, originates in the Gulf of Mexico, exits through the Strait of Florida, and follows the eastern coastline of the United States and Newfoundland.
Each is flanked by a strong and narrow “western boundary current,” and a weak and broad “eastern boundary current” (Ross, ). The Gulf Stream is a powerful western boundary current in the North Atlantic Ocean that strongly influences the climate of the East Coast of the United States and many Western European countries.
Currents, such as the California current are known as eastern boundary currents (east side of Pacific), whereas the Gulf Stream is a western boundary current (west side of Atlantic) as is the Kuroshio current in the western Pacific near Japan.

After the propagation of a Kelvin wave across the forced region in a time T k which is of the order of a day or two, the coastal upwelling zone is temporarily in equilibrium with the wind.
Further adjustment occurs after a time T R, which is of the order of a Cited by: The anticyclonic circulation is closed by a boundary current at the eastern boundary, which lacks a barotropic component and by a stronger western boundary current with a sizeable barotropic current.
The streamlines run close and parallel to the eastern boundary until about y = km, which represents the northern boundary of the tropical Cited by: 4. Eastern Boundary currents, such as the California current are slower, shallower, and wider than the western boundary currents. Similar to the return flow in a household heating system, these currents transport colder waters into the tropics where they are heated and transported poleward in the western boundary currents.
14) An eastern boundary current is generally narrow and swift. 15) The five subtropical gyres exhibit geostrophic flow, related to pressure gradients, friction, and the Coriolis effect.
16) The main current in Antarctic waters is the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, also called the West Wind Drift. Western boundary currents.
Abstract. Strong, persistent currents along the western boundaries of the world's major ocean basins are called "western boundary currents" (WBCs). This chapter describes the structure and dynamics of WBCs, their roles in basin-scale circulation, regional variability, and their influence on atmosphere and by: A meeting of the Continental Margins Task Team (CMTT) was held in conjunction with the IGBP Congress in Japan in May The focus of the CMTT meeting was to develop a plan for the synthesis of the current knowledge of CO 2 sequestration, and horizontal C, N and P fluxes in the continental margins under the tasks teams current Terms of Reference.
This thesis studies the stability of an eastern boundary current with and without the large-scale flow influence in an idealized framework represented by barotropic quasi-geostrophic dynamics.
The linear stability analysis of a meridional current with a continuous velocity profile shows that meridional eastern and western boundary currents.
Two boundary currents on both sides of Africa not included in this lesson’s activity are the Agulhas Current (western boundary current on east coast of Africa) and the Benguela Current (eastern boundary current on west coast of Africa).
Global Wind Circulation Patterns You learned about “trade winds” in class Size: KB.Eastern boundary currents, such as the California Current and the Canary Current, are slower, shallower, and wider than the western boundary currents.
Similar to the return flow in a household heating system, these currents transport colder waters into the tropics where they are heated and transported poleward in the western boundary currents.The western boundary currents, which include the Japan or Kuroshio Current (found in the North Pacific), the East Australian Current (found in the South Pacific), the Gulf Stream (found in the North Atlantic), the Brazil Current (found in the South Atlantic), and the Agulhas Current (found in the Indian Ocean), are characteristically swifter, deeper, and narrower than their counterparts in the.
