The annual cycle of hypoxia off the Changjiang Estuary, China, was assessed from data acquired during nine cruises in 2006-2007. Hypoxia began to develop in late spring and early summer, reached its maximum in August, weakened in the autumn and finally disappeared in the winter. Hypoxia first developed south-east of the Changjiang Estuary in June, appeared in the east and north-east in July, and spread both south and north of the Changjiang Estuary in August.
