Abstract:

The long-term goal is to determine the seasonal reversal South China Sea - Indonesian Seas TransportExchange SITE flow and its influence to primary Indonesian throughflow ITF and dynamics of South China Sea. The main objectives are 1 to measure the magnitude and its variability of the water mass transportexchange between the Indonesian Seas and South China Sea SCS in the Karimata Strait 2 to determine the effects of this flow and property flux from the tidal to seasonal variability on the circulation and mesoscale dynamics in the internal Indonesian Seas and the South China Sea.
