Abstract : We intend to make new Lagrangian and Eulerian observations to measure the seasonal circulation 1) in the coastal waters of Vietnam and 2) in the SCS at times and locations where only sparse direct current observations exist today. These data will also be used to test and improve hydrodynamic circulation models of the SCS and its coastal waters.
