This paper shows some results of a field observation carried out in the summer of 2014. The vertical profiles of currents and water temperature have been measured as well as wave and wind conditions, and salinity and dissolved oxygen level observations have been carried out at the observation tower of Shirahama Oceanographic Observatory. In the summer in 2014, a total of 4 typhoons (No.11, No.12, No.18 and No.19) approached to the Kii peninsula, and the high wave and strong wind conditons due to 2 typhoons (No.18 and No.19) have been captured during the observation. When the typhoons passed around the observation site, the high wave and strong wind occurred. However, the observation data of 2014 doesn't have clear shift of water temperature and salinity like the one by the typhoon No.18 in 2013. On the other hand, it is repeatedly found in the observed data that the reduction of water temperature and the increase of salinity happened simultaneously. This result indicates that the water temperature and the salinity around the observation site have some influence of the water mass of the open sea.
