An improved VGPM model were developed and applied to estimate the primary production in the northern South China Sea.The parameters of the model were gained based on the remote sensing data(including Chl a,K490 and SST et al.)provided by SeaWiFS and AVHRR.The model was modified according to the synchronous ship-measured data and the errors were estimated as well.Based on this improved model,the monthly mean of primary production in 7 years(1998 to 2004) in the northern South China Sea were… Expand

Satellite-based observations of primary production (PP) are broadly used to assess carbon fixation rate of phytoplankton in the global ocean with small spatiotemporal limitations. However, the remoteExpand
The impacts of 2008 snowstorm in China on the ecological environments in the Northern South China Sea
ABSTRACT At the beginning of 2008, disastrous weather with snowstorms truck South China. Analysis of satellite and in situ data revealed obvious changes in ecological environments in the northernExpand
Long term changes in the ecosystem in the northern South China Sea during 1976 2004
Abstract. Physical and chemical oceanographic data were obtained by seasonal monitoring along a transect (Transect N) in the northern South China Sea (nSCS) during 1976–2004. Fluctuations of DINExpand
A comparison study on primary production in typical low-latitude seas(South China Sea and Bay of Bengal)
Primary productions of the two seas and their influencing factors were reviewed in this paper, and PP in the coastal waters of SCS was higher than that in the BOB. Expand
Summertime primary production in northwest South China Sea: Interaction of coastal eddy, upwelling and biological processes
The Northwest South China Sea (NWSCS) ecosystem is controlled by multiple physical processes in summer including the monsoon wind induced coastal upwelling, the cyclonic eddy off the eastern LeizhouExpand
Similarities and Differences of Oceanic Primary Productivity Product Estimated by Three Models Based on MODIS for the Open South China Sea
An intercomparison of three ocean net primary productivity products for the open South China Sea estimated by Standard VGPM, Eppley-VGPM and CbPM models from MODIS gives significant differences among the annual ocean NPP averages estimated by the three models. Expand
Striking seasonal pattern of primary production in the river-dominated ocean margin of the northern South China Sea (NSCS-RiOMar) revealed by new field and remotely sensed data
Abstract Seasonal patterns of phytoplankton biomass and primary production (PP) are important features characterizing a marine ecosystem. The South China Sea (SCS) has been arbitrarily illustrated asExpand
The Relationship between POC Export Efficiency and Primary Production: Opposite on the Shelf and Basin of the Northern South China Sea
Accurate estimation of particulate organic carbon (POC) export efficiency in the euphotic layer is essential to understand the efficiency of the ocean’s biological carbon pump, but field measurementsExpand
Influence of mesoscale eddies on primary production in the South China Sea during spring inter-monsoon period
Mesoscale eddies have been suggested to have an impact on biological carbon fixation in the South China Sea (SCS). However, their overall contribution to primary production during the springExpand
Factors affecting the abundance and community structure of the phytoplankton in northern South China Sea in the summer of 2008: a biomarker study
Phytoplankton biomarkers were analyzed using suspended particles collected from the northern South China Sea (SCS) during the summer cruise of 2008, with the goal of understanding the algal communityExpand
