Short summary
The sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies in the South China Sea (SCS) and their influences on global atmospheric circulation were studied. The results of the simple atmospheric model suggested that the SCS SST anomalies can induce several barotropic wave trains from the SCS to other regions. The baroclinic stream function anomalies from the simple model showed an anticyclonic vortex pair and a cyclonic vortex pair.
