    The Tsugaru Strait, which connects the Sea of Japan with the Pacific Ocean, is characterized by the eastward Tsugaru Warm Current (TWC) and oscillating tidal currents of similar magnitude. A 15-day current observation was conducted in one of the two narrow channels in the strait, at the...

    Waves and currents recorded off Chavara, southwest coast of India, over a period of 2 years are used to understand the wave-current regime of this monsoon dominated coast. The waves during monsoon are characterised by higher heights, shorter periods, and are confined to westerly directions. The...
