Rapid Variability in the Japan/East Sea: Basin Oscillations, Internal Tides, and Near-Inertial Oscillations

First Paragraph

Many processes contribute to the variations of currents, sea surface height (SSH), and thermocline depth in marginal seas. Energetic examples range broadly over time scales from slow mesoscale and interannual variations to rapid basin oscillations, internal tides, and near-inertial oscillations. Our measurement array in the Japan/East Sea (JES) offered a special opportunity to study these processes simultaneously, revealing important interconnections among them.
