Abstract: The responses of the upper ocean to typhoon Namtheun in July 2004 areinvestigated by sea surface measurements and vertical profiles. Pre-typhoonocean environment played an important role in this case. There were two extremecooling regions located at cyclonic eddy A and typhoon wake B. Although themagnitudes of SST cooling at A and B were similar, other physical andbiophysical responses were quite different. Combining multi-satellite data withvertical profile data, it is found that the upwelling dominated the responsesat A and the vertical mixing dominated the responses at B. This study impliesthat to insight into the ocean surface responses to typhoon, the subsurfacedynamics need to be analyzed via both the in situ and satellite-basedobservations, and the physical and biological models.
