Abstract: Based on the high-resolution ROMS(Regional Ocean Modeling System) model with daily wind-forcing data provided by NCEP CFSR, we conducted a numerical simulation on 35-year-long wind-driven circulation in winter in Bohai Sea, North China. Empirical Orthogonal Function(EOF) decomposition was applied to the vertical averaged currents. The results indicate that the change in wind forcing plays a major role in the interannual variation of the winter circulation system. Firstly, change in wind direction is significantly related with the 1st EOF mode and has an impact on the cyclonic structure of currents in the central Bohai Sea. Secondly, the increase of wind strength is related with the 2st EOF mode and may result in an increasing trend of currents of Bohai Sea in winter, especially from 1995. Therefore, change in wind direction affects more the interannual variation of wind-driven current than change in wind strength does.
