  • In this study, the sectional characteristics of temperature, salinity and density off the central Zhejiang coast were analyzed using three sections of observational data in the spring of 2016. The results are as follows:(1) a cold water patch was observed in the middle layer of sections from 10 to 25 m, and a weak upwelling was observed at the upper layer near the central Zhejiang coast; (2) several thermoclines, inverted thermoclines, and haloclines were observed in the survey area; (3) the Taiwan Warm Current Water (TWCW) climbing from the slope towards the survey area affected the thermocline, making it thinner and intensified; however, the TWCW was not strong enough to break through the thermocline to reach the sea surface.
