|Abstract: ||Abstract:Warm and cold sea surface temperature (SST) tongues on
weather timescales are detected in the continental slope region
of the northern South China Sea (NSCS), and their effects on
sea surface wind are studied, using satellite observations.
Crossing the basin-scale SST front, geostrophic currents
between cyclonic and anticyclonic eddies induce the warm
and cold SST tongues during the northeast monsoon.
Corresponding to the warm and cold SST tongues, the sea
surface wind is highly uneven in spatial distribution. Its
speed is faster (slower) over the warm (cold) SST tongues
than the surrounding areas. The SST and sea surface wind
non-uniformity, in space, shifts southwestward with eddy
motion, along the continental slope. These new findings
from satellite observations give us an opportunity to study
oceanic eddy’s roles in ocean-atmosphere interaction on
