In order to realize the Kuroshio front in relation to the hazardous storm surge, anevolution of a vorticity front is studied theoretically. A satellite thermal picture is alsointroduced to identify a possible evolution of the existing Kuroshio front as a vorticityfront in terms of an undulation of the Kuroshio flow around the shelf off the coast inthe ocean of the rotating Earth. This could be a trigger to reveal mechanism of stormsurges around the Kuroshio front in the Northwestern Pacific.
