[1] During the 1997–1998 El Niño event, the average sea surface temperature (SST) in the Taiwan Strait (TWS) in the winter was 1.4 C higher than that of the winter climatological mean. The areal ratio of the warm water ( 2 C above the regional mean) to the cold water ( 2 C below the regional mean) in the TWS increased by 25%while the area of the eutrophic water (chlorophyll a >1 mg m ) was halved. Field observations also indicate that the mixed layer in the TWS became more nutrient-poor during… CONTINUE READING
