Proposed the key pathways of material transport from the Kuroshio to the coastal sea: two bottom intrusion branches ( NKBC and OKBC). Reported a theory of “Topographic beta spiral” that well explain this intrusion pattern. This theory could apply to many places in the word ocean. Found that the NKBC is the key pathway that Kuroshio influences the coastal algal blooms and its extent and strength could influence the timing and location of the coastal algal bloom.
