Short summary
Our study shows a high-resolution regional atmospheric model improves near-surface wind and air temperature simulation, resulting in improved circulation and hydrographic simulations in the Pearl River estuary. High-resolution wind forcing is critical for coastal circulation and cross-isobath transport, while high-resolution heat forcing greatly improves sea surface temperature simulation. High-resolution atmospheric forcing is essential for accurately simulating dynamic coastal ocean processes.
