摘要Analyzing the observed currents at Xisha (110.3899 degrees E, 17.1038 degrees N) during May 2009 to May 2010, it is found that the kinetic energy has significant mesoscale variability, and each peak responds to large positive/negative ocean surface current curl caused by mesoscale eddies. Compared the kinetic energy with the wind stress work and the pressure work, it is also found that the barotropic pressure work which is mainly contributed by the sea surface height (SSH) corresponding to the mesoscale eddies behaves like the kinetic energy. The contribution of the mesoscale eddies to the kinetic energy can be up to 90% sometimes and reach deep level every time. Using the satellite altimeter data, the paths of mesoscale eddies contributing to the kinetic energy variability are traced back. In the winter half of the year, the mesoscale eddies propagating along the northern South China Sea shelf or across the basin from the west of the Philippines toward Xisha arrive at Xisha, influencing the kinetic energy. In the summer half of the year, the mesoscale eddies are mainly from the south, which were shed from the Vietnam coast current. And the cause for eddy shedding may be related to the relaxation of the Ekman transport anomalies.
