Based on the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM), this article presents simulations of the three-dimensional dynamic and thermal structure of the North Pacific Ocean (NPO) in the time domain from January 1991 to December 2000. The baroclinic current field and its interannual variability in Northwest Pacific Ocean (NWPO), especially, the Kuroshio Current (KC) and the Japan/East Sea (JES) are analyzed and discussed. The results show that the HYCOM covers a complete dynamic and thermo process with adequate representations of the eddy fields and variability in main spatial and temporal scales. The model is used to simulate the strong interanual variability of the KC, which may affect the strength of the eastern bifurcation of the Tsushima Warm Current (TSWC), named the Nearshore Branch (NB) in the JES. When the KC is strong and its axis is close to the Japan Island, the TSWC and its bifurcations in the JES would intensify accordingly. Our results confirm once again the hypothesis of Yang et al. that the KC determines the annual mean NB in the JES via the "island integral constraint". This article further extends this hypothesis to study the KC role in the NB on a time dependent scale. © 2010 Publishing House for Journal of Hydrodynamics. Source

This article focus on the yellow river estuary's changing path to sea, study the issue from perspectives of history, geography, humanities and so on, and discuss a mechanism of the Yellow River estuary's changing path to sea under the mutual effect of the climate change, frozen soil area, forest area and geography around the Yellow River region and human activities. One of the main reasons of destroying the river source is human harmful living way. Irrational plan which divides river water to another regions is a direct reason of the reduction of the Yellow River water flowing into the sea. The warming climate and degenerated frozen soil are indirect reasons. The Yellow River estuary's changing path to sea is not only a science question, but also a large problem for human survival. Stopping destroying activities and acting sustainably are the only way to solve this problem. © 2011 IEEE. Source

Marine disasters belong to natural disasters. Ocean is the cradle of life on Earth nurtured, but it is also the breeding grounds for many marine disasters. Such as storm tide, wave, tsunami, sea ice, etc. Storm tide is the heaviest natural disaster in them. In face of nature disaster, human beings seem unable tiny. But including marine disasters, many natural disasters can be prevented and mitigated by researching and forecasting. Tliis article describes the main types of marine disasters; discuss of a marine disaster prevention and mitigation methods; summary and outlook the problems on marine disaster prevention and mitigation should be pay attention to.
