  Parallel Worlds Could Exist in Ocean Circulations
  - Ensemble experiments analyze interannual variability of the Kuroshio
  Extension -

  A research team led by Dr. Masami Nonaka at Application Laboratory, the
  Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) and Dr.
  Hisashi Nakamura, Professor at RCAST, evaluated ocean interannual
  variability with ensemble experiments using the JAMSTEC's supercomputer,
  the Earth Simulator.  The results showed existence of unpredictable
  intrinsic variability and potentially predictable wind-driven variability,
  both of which are contributing to the interannual variability in the
  mid-latitude ocean currents, including the Kuroshio and its eastward
  extension, Kuroshio Extension (KE) jet speed.

  The results of this research were published on Scientific Reports.
