Short summary
In this study, we investigate the physical factors controlling the biological production in a coastal upwelling system, the Vietnam boundary upwelling system in the South China Sea. We found that, in addition to the effects from the wind (as a major factor driving the ocean), the ocean circulation could also contribute positively to the production here, which is distinct from other major coastal upwelling systems.
In this study, we investigate the physical factors controlling the biological production in a...
