THE RESPONSE OF THE SEA WATER THERMAL STRUCTURE IN THE WESTERN TROPICAL PACIFIC OCEAN TO THE 1986-1987 ENSO EVENT

Liu Zanpei(First Institute of Oceanography, SOA, Qingdao 266003)  
The variations of the thermal structure in the- western tropical Pacific during the 1986-1987 ENSO event are discussed in this paper by using the data obtained from four cruises of PRC-USA Joint Air-sea Interaction Studies in the western Pacific Ocean. The results from the analysis of the data and calculations show that the heat content of the sea water in the warm pool of the western tropical Pacific was decreasing markedly during the event. Meanwhile, its variations and variations of the SST anomalies at EQ, 140°.W and in the regions Nino1 + Nino2 of the eastern Pacific were out of phase. Basides, the thermoclines there lifted up by 50-100m and upper mixed layer became shallow obviously during the event. The anomalous lift of the thermoclines was associated closely with the west wind anomaly and intensification of positive wind stress curl on both sides of the equator.
