Short summary
We conduct direct microstructure measurements that cover the SCS to explore the features of the turbulent mixing. Our results indicate that strong turbulent mixing was observed in the region to the west of the Luzon Strait where the diapycnal diffusivity is almost an order of magnitude higher than the values of the central and southern SCS. The energetic internal waves and internal tides generated near the Luzon Strait are expected to make a dominant contribution to creating this mixing patten.
