Short summary
The PSC model was re-tuned for regional application in the East China Sea, and successfully applied to MODIS data. We investigated previously unknown temporal–spatial patterns of the PSC in the ECS and analyzed their responses to environmental factors. The results show the PSC varied across both spatial and temporal scales, and was probably affected by the water column stability, upwelling, and Kuroshio. In addition, human activity and riverine discharge may impact the PSC dynamics.
