Abstract: Based on hydrolaogic and nutrient data obtained from four seasonal surveys during 2006—2007 in the southern Yellow Sea,the role of the Yellow Sea western coastal cold water in the formation of the southern Yellow Sea Cold Water Mass and its western cold core is discussed from the chemicohydrographic perspective.In addition,the inner relationship between the southern Yellow Sea Cold Water Mass and the Qingdao Cold Water Mass is revealed,and the formation mechanism of the western cold core of the Yellow Sea Cold Water Mass in summer is also expounded.The results show that:the Yellow Sea Western Coastal Current flows southward along the continental shelf front in winter and spring.The cold water carried by the Yellow Sea Western Coastal Current in winter and spring plays an important role in forming the Qingdao Cold Water Mass,the Southern Yellow Sea intermediate,and bottom Cold Water in spring as well as the Southern Yellow Sea Western Cold Water Mass and its western cold core in summer;the southern Yellow Sea Western Cold Water in bottom develops initially in the sea area near the Qingdao Cold Water Mass,and becomes the western cold core of the Yellow Sea Cold Water Mass in summer.With autumn coming,the bottom cold water in the east of the continental shelf front degrades gradually.Meanwhile,the Yellow Sea western coastal cold water begins to flow southward again,and hence provide the source for the Qingdao Cold Water,the southern Yellow Sea intermediate,and bottom Cold Water in spring as well as the southern Yellow Sea Western Cold Water in summer next year.Those processes consist of seasonal succession of the bottom water in the east of the continental shelf front in summer.The understandings of the Yellow Sea Western Coastal Current and the southern Yellow Sea Western Cold Water Mass as well as their relationship are further studied.
