Abstract
Since the year 2000, the number of Argo floats in the world oceans has been increasing year by year and more than 3,000 floats are now operating in the world oceans. Argo floats measure temperature and salinity, giving an unprecedented seasonally-unbiased data set for mixed layer depth (MLD) estimation. For the East Sea, Argo floats provide 8063 temperature profiles since 2000 through 2008, mostly covering southern East Sea south of the subpolar front (SPF). We, in thisstudy, present seasonal variation of East Sea MLD inferred from the Argo temperature profiles. We defined MLD as the depth at which the temperature is larger than the surface by 0.2℃℃. The East Sea MLD from Argo floats revealed strong seasonal variability, with shallower (less than 20 m) in summer and deeper (more than 200 m) in winter. It also indentified some distinct spatial patterns including shallower MLD near the SPF, deeper MLD over the Ulleung Warm eddy in winter.
