Ocean Circulation; Mesoscale eddy; Climate change
1. Defined a simple index for Kuroshio intrusion into the South China Sea (SCS) to identify three typical paths which had been adopted extensively.
2. Proposed a model of eddy-Kuroshio interactions in the northeastern SCS and examined its changes and dynamics.
3. Discovered the anticyclonic rings in the northern SCS and extra-large subsurface anticyclonic eddy to the east of the Kuroshio.
4. Illustrated the Kuroshio changes and its influences on the SCS in the view of salinity changes.
5. Published a review paper on the Kuroshio intrution into the SCS.
