Short summary
Motivated by eddy-splitting near Dongsha island, the eddy's trajectory and the effect of topography on eddy evolution were explored using the MITgcm. Warm eddies propagate to the southwest while cold eddies propagate to the northwest in open oceans. The results of the model indicate that the eddy would split in a qualitative range, and the location of the eddy split-off is related to the island size. In addition, eddy-splitting is an important way to transform energy between different scales.
