Abstract:
      South China Sea, its circulation and connection with other parts of the world oceans, poses important scientific questions. From the prospective view, we postulate ten key research directions to be pursued in the coming future, including ventilation of a monsoon dominated sea, water mass formation/transformation, heat/salt and water mass balance, energetics and mixing, mesoscale eddies, the role of typhoon, deep circulation and paleoclimate records, interaction with adjacent oceans, upwelling and ecology system, and response to climate changes.
中文摘要:
      南海环流及其与世界大洋的联系带来许多重要的科学问题.本文前瞻性地提出了南海十个近期值得关注的重点研究方向,包括季风控制南海的通风问题、水团的形成和变性、海洋热盐及其质量平衡、环流能量学与海洋混合、中尺度涡、台风的海洋效应、深层海洋环流与古气候记录、南海与邻近大洋的相互作用、上升流与生态系统、以及对南海气候变化的响应.
