abstract:The Dongsha cold eddy (DEC) at northern South China Sea and its charac-teristics and variations in migrating southwestward to Hainan Island has been studied by the ARGOS drifters and satellite remote sensing as those of altimeter, sea surface temperature and ocean color. A paper authored by the PI and his Ph.D. student of this proposal has been accepted by JGR and will be published in early 2008. Since the mesoscale eddy is a mechanism of energy cascade of an ocean circulation to turbulence field, the most representative one would be the Vietnam Cyclonic Eddy (VCE) to deserve an intensive study. Characteris-tics of the VCE like the initial location, appearance season, moving and dimin-ishing, bottom topographic effect, water level at center, size of the eddy, tan-gential speed, vorticity, kinetic energy, etc., will be analyzed with methods similar to those for the DCE. The understanding of the two mesoscale eddies would be substantially related to the research on the alternation of the SCS ba-sin-wide circulation structure.
