US Navy advances in winter 1944/45

and the low winter temperatures

in Kyoto / Japan

Along the warm Northern Equatorial Current, which continues as Kuroshio Current, the US Forces deployed more and more control in the Western Pacific since 1943, while surface vessels, air crafts and submarines operated beyond the shown borders. The upper sea surface structure could have been effected in many ways, particularly by forcing colder water to the surface layer, which would be reasonable explanation why the winter temperature in Kyoto (and other cities in Japan) became suddenly the coldest for a half century and more.
