Surface Transport Charts for the North Pacific Ocean, by W. Percy Wickettl • J.A.C. Thomson2 and L.V. Pienaar2 Fisheries Research Board of Canada Biological Station, Nanaimo, B.C. Introduction Monthly charts of surface transport vectors (synoptic pilot charts) for the North Pacific Ocean can be drawn using the 22 years of meridional. In section 3b, the locations where the deep North Pacific particles make their last and first contact with the sea surface are discussed and the ventilation of the ocean’s oldest water mass using an Eulerian tracer diagnostic to partition the water in the deep North Pacific Ocean according to the surface region where it was last exposed to Cited by: 3.

Seasonal variations of waters in the northern Gulf of Alaska not find an annual cycle for bottom water replenishment in fiords along the eastern by:   The °E repeat hydrographic section of the Japan Meteorological Agency across the western North Pacific was initiated in as part of the Cooperative Study of the Kuroshio and Adjacent Regions and has been continued biannually in winter and summer. The publicly available data from the section have been widely used to reveal seasonal to decadal variations and long-term Cited by: 9.

The ocean heat transport is strongly associated with the mass transport in the ITF, and accordingly the mass budgets for the Indian and the Pacific Oceans are not closed. This leads to some arbitrariness in terms of how the heat transports are described as the total depends on the reference temperature, chosen here to be 0°C.   We conclude that Rhizosolenia mats may transport the equivalent of 50% of the new nitrogen requirements into the surface waters of the North Pacific gyre.

The estimated value of heat transport through the strait is × 10 15 W.
