Short summary
Research on the summer TWC has been conducted previously; however, the spatial structure and temporal variation of the winter TWC are less known due to its weak mean velocity. Therefore, FVCOM was used to evaluate the spatial patterns of TWC synoptic fluctuations. We observed that the TWC fluctuations appear mainly to the north of Taiwan and in the inshore area. Our results will be useful in the dynamical understanding of the winter TWC and its impact on cross-shore transport.
