The North Equatorial Current(NEC) in the Pacific Ocean bifurcates as it approaches the Phillippine coast,feeding the northward flowing Kuroshio and the southward flowing Mindanao Current(MC).The NEC-Kuroshio-MC current system is important because of its role in the heat budget of the western Pacific Ocean warmpool and its direct involvement in the global ocean thermocline circulation via the Indonesian throughflow,both of which are believed to be essential in determining the world's climate.Also,the current system is a part of the shallow,meridional,wind and buoyancy-flux-driven circulation that directly connects the subtropical and equatorial oceans.Studies of the current system have significantly advanced our knowledge of its mass and heat transport,in particular with regard to its variations.In this paper,we give a summary of the main studies on western boundary current system in the North Pacific Ocean in latest twenty years in order to get more completely understanding of its structure and variations.The NEC bifurcation is mainly controlled remotely by Rossby waves from the east,remotely by equatorward propagating coastal Kelvin-like waves from the north,and locally by the East Asian monsoon,in which the Asian monsoon is the most important factor deciding the seasonal variation of the NEC bifurcation.Special attentions should be paid on the following key problems,that is,the NEC bifurcation latitude, mean transport and its variability of the NMK current system,the seasonal and inter-annual variability of NEC bifurcation latitude,the relationship between the variability of NEC and ENSO,the role of the NMK current system in exchanging the tropical and subtropical water and the dynamic mechanism of the NEC bifurcation and the mean structure of the NMK current system.Though there are some difficulties such as short of data and no completely three dimensional numerical model with enough high resolution of the western boundary current system in the North Pacific Ocean in present research,it is still possible for us to understand the SCS circulation more clearly by further ocean investigation,four dimensional assimilation on all historical data,diagnostic analysis of physical mechanism with simple conceptual model and numerical experiment considering all sorts of physical processes.
