dc.description.abstract The Kerama Gap, near the middle of the Ryukyu Island chain, is the deepest channel with a sill depth of 1050 m connecting the East China Sea (ECS) to the Northwestern Pacific. We measured the flow through the Kerama Gap from June 2009 to June 2011. The 2 year mean transport, 2.0 +/- 0.7 Sv, is into the ECS from the Northwestern Pacific; it contributes about 11% of the mean Kuroshio transport in the ECS at the PN line. Subtidal standard deviation of the transport through the Kerama Gap is 3.2 Sv, comparable to that of the PN-line Kuroshio transport (4.0 Sv), suggesting a significant effect of Kerama Gap transport on temporal variability of the Kuroshio transport in the ECS. Comparison with time series of satellite-measured sea surface height maps reveals that temporal variability of the Kerama Gap transport is related to the arrival of mesoscale eddies from the east: high (low) transport into the ECS is associated with the presence of a cyclonic (anticyclonic) eddy south of the Kerama Gap. -
