The trength of ocean current
ha been meaured by a network of enor, called the RAPID array, which have been collecting data on the flow rate of the Atlantic meridonal overturning circulation (AMOC) for a decade.
IHI and Toshiba, together with the University of Tokyo and Mitsui Global Strategic Studies Institute, have conducted R&D financed by Nedo's "R&D of Ocean Energy Technology - R&D of Next-Generation Ocean Energy Power Generation (Underwater Floating Type Ocean Current
Turbine System)" programme since fiscal year 2011.
The companies will act as joint researchers for the Ocean Energy Technology - Demonstration Research of Ocean Energy Power Generation, which builds on the results offered by R&D of Ocean Energy Technology - R&D of Next-Generation Ocean Energy Power Generation (Underwater Floating Type Ocean Current
Turbine System) co-implemented with the University of Tokyo and Mitsui Global Strategic Studies Institute.
Combined, all these measurements will provide additional information to scientists on how accurately each drifter design is measuring the currents, which will then be implemented to improve ocean current
These test berths, each consisting of a buoy anchored to the sea floor, allow ocean current
turbine prototypes (up to 100kW generation capacity) to be deployed from vessels moored in the Gulf Stream for a few weeks at a time.
Richardson's knowledge of ocean currents
and his natural curiosity occasionally prompted forays into peripheral scientific territory.
Misaki's ball possibly drifted with the huge circular ocean current
called the North Pacific Gyre, says Menemenlis.
In a recent paper published in Nature Geoscience, researchers described the current, which is more than three kilometres below the Ocean's surface and is near the Kerguelen Plateau in the Indian Ocean sector of the Southern Ocean, as an important pathway in a global network of ocean currents
that influence climate patterns.
The Met Office accepts this, saying ocean current
movements will have ".
Foreign Minister Taro Aso said he called on South Korea for self-restraint Monday night over its ocean current
survey around disputed islets in the Sea of Japan as he spoke by phone with South Korean Foreign Affairs and Trade Minister Ban Ki Moon.
SCIENTISTS have found clear evidence that the ocean current
"engine" helping to drive the Gulf Stream is weakening.
A Japan Meteorological Agency marine weather observation vessel last week recorded a strong easterly ocean current
in waters close to Papua New Guinea in the western Pacific, agency officials said Friday.
If this vast and inexhaustible ocean current
were used to generate power, it could result in safe and stable energy and Japan could become a leading energy super power.
Rotating devices capture the kinetic energy, such as a tidal stream, ocean current
or river, as it passes across a rotor.
It is part of a complex ocean current
and atmospheric system responsible for the warm Gulf Stream, which produces as much energy as one million power stations and ensures that Britain enjoys a mild climate.
