does not exceed the 5% significance level). Fig . 2. Winter THF time series (W m −2 ) averaged for the WKOCR (dashed) and EKOCR (solid). To confirm the absence of a relationship between the THF in the eastern and western parts of the KOC, we perform a rotated empirical orthogonal function (REOF) analysis using a varimax orthogonal rotation, which is widely accepted as the most accurate analytic algebraic orthogonal rotation ( Kaiser 1958 , 1959 ; Richman 1986 ). This analysis was applied to the

, forming the mixed water region in between, whereas the other part flows southward along the east coast of Japan to form extremely tight SST gradient on the northern flank of the KE. In comparison with high-resolution satellite observations, we investigate how the representation of the mesoscale imprints of these SST fronts on MABL in ERA-Interim is modified as the resolution of the SST field has been improved. Indeed, Chelton (2005) showed that mesoscale wind stress fields in the eastern tropical
