Abstract: Abstract: Cross-shelf exchange of nutrients (N, P and Si) off northeastern Taiwan and along-shelf transports just north of the Taiwan Strait was assessed using chemical hydrography and velocity fields observed in August 1994 (summer) and March 1997 (winter). The summer survey was conducted along the periphery of a triangle. The velocity field was determined by phase-averaged current velocities measured with ship-borne ADCP on two rounds separated by 3.5 cycles of the dominant M2 tide. Nutrient distributions were derived from phase-averaged hydrographic data. Although the inflowing and outflowing volume transports were mismatched by 14% largely due to poorly estimated surface flow that carried little nutrients, the inputs and outputs of nutrients agreed within 2–5%. Such consistency lends support to the adopted approach for estimating nutrient fluxes. The winter survey, which provided observations on two transects, one along-shelf and one cross-shelf, was conducted using two ships separated by 1/2 cycle of the M2 tide. Results from the two ships allowed determination of the phase-averaged flow fields and chemical hydrography. The two surveys indicated that the Kuroshio upwelling provided rather constant nutrient fluxes to the shelf, which were comparable to the total nutrient influxes from slope waters to the Mid and South Atlantic Bight and considerably larger than the riverine sources. Significant amounts of nutrients from the shelf leaked back into the surface layer of the Kuroshio, replenishing its impoverished nutrient reserves. Along-shelf nutrient fluxes from the Taiwan Strait changed drastically between seasons, ranging from less than half to more than double the Kuroshio inputs. In the light of the variability of the shelf environment, more observations are needed to better determine the mean condition of this transport.
