What is it about?
The Western Isoguchi Jet is a unique quasi-stationary jet along the Subarctic Front in the North Pacific Ocean. The dynamics of the were investigated using an idealized two-layer model.

Why is it important?
A seafloor topography, which is merely 500m high, produces a surface jet with an eddy-induced anticyclonic barotropic over the topography.
