OS019:
Relationship between the Upper Ocean Processes and Air-sea Interactions between Maritime Continent and the South China Sea at Multi-timescale





Session ID#: 25001

Session Description:
The air-sea interactions over the maritime continent (MC) play an important role in the global weather-climate system. The upper ocean processes and air-sea interactions in the South China Sea (SCS) are closely linked to those in the MC and the surrounding seas. The SCS throughflow (SCSTF) can significantly reduce the Indonesian throughflow heat transport, a crucial link of the ocean general circulation, with considerable impact on heat distribution in the MC. Teleconnections related to the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) are the strongest when MJO convection is centered over the MC. But MC is the barrier of the eastward propagation of MJO, which could have strong influence on the air-sea interactions in the SCS. This session calls for the presentations featuring new results on the relationship between the upper ocean processes and air-sea interactions between MC and the SCS at multi-timescale.
