|Keywords||night light visible image / fishing fleet distribution / Japanese common squid / Pacific saury / Sea surface temperature image / spatial analysis / marine environmental information / migration pattern|
(1) Processing of DMSP/OLS images and data base generation
We gathered DMSP/OLS images covering Japan Sea and off Sanriku from 1994 to 1999 and generated Data base of fishing fleets distribution.
(2) Processing of satellite sea surface temperature and ocean color images and data base generation
We gathered NOAA/AVHRR, ADEOS/OCTS, Orbview-2/SeaWiFS images covering Japan Sea and off Sanriku from 1994 to 1999 and generated Data base of SST and chlorophyll a.
(3) Investigation of meso-scale eddies using altimeter sea surface height data.
We investigated the distribution of meso-scale eddies, Kuroshio warm core rings (KWCR) and Tsugaru warm current gyres (TWCG), using TOPEX/ERS-2 sea surface height anomaly data.
(4) Statistical analysis of squid fishing fleets distribution
(5) Analysis of the relationship between fishing fleets distribution and SST distribution
We analyzed the position of squid fishing ground and the distanc e from SST fronts.
(6) Observation of fishing fleets distribution from Mt. Hakodate using digital camera
We developed a methodology to analyze from oblique photograph to vertical photograph and could count the number of fishing fleets in a pixel of OLS images.
(7) Analysis of migration routes of Pacific saury
The coalescence of KWCR-93A and TWCG in 1995 and 1998 cut off the intrusion of the first branch of Oyashio as one of the migration routes of Pacific saury. Fishing grounds moved to offshore and it indicated the coalescence was important phenomena changing the migration routes.
