- Field Measurements at Tanabe-Nakashima Observation Tower in the Summer of 2012
This paper shows some results of intensive field observations carried out in the summer seasons in 2012. The intensive field observations have been conducted at the observation tower of Shirahama Oceanographic Observatory (SOO), DPRI, Kyoto University. One of the aims of the observations is field data measurements to comprehend the vertical mixing process due to wind and wind wave. During the observations, one typhoon (TC17, Jelawat) hit the Kii peninsula and passed along the southern coast of Japan. In the observation, the vertical profiles of currents and water temperature have been measured as well as wind and wave conditions. The main results are as follows: Strong wind and high wave conditions have occurred when the typhoon hit the observation site. The water temperature felt down a few hours later the typhoons come close to the observation site. The observed results underline the needs for the continuous observation activities and multidimensional data analysis.
