Taiwan Warm Current
A northward flowing current that carries warm subtropical water into the East China Sea.
It originates partly as an offshoot of the Kuroshio just northeast of Taiwan, partly as a current through Taiwan Strait. When it meets the southward flowing China Coastal Current near 30°S, it submerges and continues northward below a depth of 5 m.
