In this study, controlling factor of a horizontal expansion of a fish-killing Karenia mikimotoi red-tide was clarified in the Yatsushiro Sea using multiple data sources. The backscattering data of the current meter captured the modulation of DVM (shallowing of the night distribution). It was suggested that the horizontal expansion of the bloom was driven by the strong surface current and the modulation of DVM.

Titles: Nonlinearly interacting entrainment due to shear and convection in the surface oceanAbstracts: This study reveals that sheared flow and convection nonlinearly interact in the ocean surface mixed layer, resulting in reduced entrainment of water from below the mixed layer. Overestimated mixed layer depths seen in many ocean general circulation model simulations may likely be ascribed to inappropriate representation of this nonlinear interaction by those models.
