Some thoughts on the Cold Eddy south of Enshunada

On the basis of the results confirmed in the new volume “Kuroshio”, a figure is presented on subsurface temperature arranged chronologically for the selected one-degree square to clearly document the bimodal state of the Kuroshio in this area. To extend this analysis of the state further into the non-documented past, a preliminary survey is attempted with the data on air and sea-temperatures at Hachijojima of these 45 years. As may be anticipated, those data are found to bear little in-phase correlation with the Cold Eddy, though they might prove useful after further analysis. Some ideas of analyzing tree-rings on Hachijojima and shallow sea sediments are also discussed in this connection.
