Abstract
Subtropical gyre in the North Pacific ocean and its major current, the Kuroshio are one of the most important dynamic factors affecting the circulation and the sea surface height distribution in the East Asian Marginal Seas; the Kuroshio not only supplies heat and salt to the seas surrounding the Korean Peninsula and the Japanese Island, but also sustains high sea level state off the East China Sea shelf through the geostrophic balance. The North Pacific subtropical gyre and the Kuroshio region show the highest sea level in the global ocean. In this study we have conducted a series of numerical experiments to set up the ocean circulation model for simulating the realistic sea level variation and the circulation in the Northwest Pacific.
