Variability of surface circulation in the South China Sea from satellite altimeter data
Chinese Science Bulletin
11-year satellite altimeter sea surface height (SSH) anomaly data from January 1993 to December 2003 are used to present the dominant spatial patterns and temporal variations of the South China Sea (SCS) surface circulation through Empirical Orthogonal Function (EOF) analysis. The first three EOF modes show the obvious seasonal variations of SSH in the SCS. EOF mode one is generally characterized by a basin-wide circulation. Mode two describes the double-cell basin scale circulation structure.doi:10.1007/s11434-006-9001-6 fatcat:5dfe7vehu5a75bhy62png2ucn4
