About The Product

Published by means of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Coastal and Estuarine reports Series.

Lake Biwa is essential in a social context. it's the greatest lake in Japan and almost immediately offers a few 15 million humans in 4 prefectures, Shiga, Kyoto, Osaka and Hyogo with ingesting water, making it the only most vital resource of water in Japan.

It can be very important from a geographical point of view. it's a average lake born a few 5 million years in the past and is for this reason geologically one of many oldest lakes on the earth.

The dominant temperatureoscillation period was about 2 days corresponding to theperiodof the internalKelvin wavethat haddevelopedin the main basin. Temperatureoscillationswere consistentlyin phasewith eachotherwhile the currentvelocitiesat 8 rn and43 rn were 180ø out of phasewith the temperaturesignal. As the upper layer water moved northwardand the lower layer southward,the temperatureat all stationsrosesimultaneously, and conversely,when the upperlayer flowedsouthward andthelowerlayernorthward,the temperature fell.
