Abstract

We have investigated the northeasterly/southwesterly wind jets blowing through the Tsushima Strait from two case studies. Using high-resolution winds derived from SAR, we have presented the detailed structure of wind in the strait. The general flow is generally close to geostrophic wind in the strait, inferring from the seal level pressure fields. Wind jets are induced by two channels and by the terrestrial gap at the center of the Tsushima Island. The wind jets are clearly separated from the coastlines.
