Short summary
Here, we investigated the seasonal variability of subsurface high-salinity water (SHSW) in the northern South China Sea (SCS) and its relationship with the North Equatorial Current-Kuroshio circulation system. Results give new insight into water exchange through the Luzon Strait (LS). The changes in western Pacific large-scale circulation modulate the water exchange in the LS, and thus influence the SHSW in the interior SCS basin.
