Short summary
The reproductivity and predictability of mesoscale eddies in the northern South China Sea are investigated with a focus on two anticyclonic eddies based on an assimilated system. The results show that generation, evolution, and propagation paths of these two eddies can be well reproduced and forecasted when the observed amplitude >8 cm. However, when their amplitudes are <8 cm, the generation and decay of these two mesoscale eddies cannot be well reproduced and predicted by the system.
The reproductivity and predictability of mesoscale eddies in the northern South China Sea are...
