The University of Rhode Island (URI), in the USA, and Kagoshima University (KU), in
Japan, jointly undertook a study of the time variability of flow through the Kerama Gap.
To accomplish this, an array of Current-and-Pressure-sensor-equipped Inverted Echo
Sounder (CPIES) and Current Meter (CM) moorings was deployed in the KG during June 2009 and maintained until June 2011. The CPIES and CM moorings were intended to provide data enabling us to determine the upper-layer (depth<500 >m) and lower-layer(depth>500m) flows, respectively.
