Abstract. We examine the time-evolutional behavior of self-organized Turing patterns under spatiotemporal forcing in one-dimensional systems. Based on the model equations, we apply a space-time-dependent external force. The entrainment and modulation of time-evolutional patterns are investigated numerically in one dimension. We develop a theoretical analysis to understand the obtained dynamics, and conjecture about the mode selection of the one-dimensional Turing pattern.
