A: Map of the region of interest, with detailed study region shown by the expanded box. B: The bathymetric chart of the in situ and satellite data sampling area (The base maps of A and B were produced by ARCGIS 10). The in-situ sampling stations are denoted by dots, and the three transects T1, T2 and T3 are indicated by lines. The path of T1 covers areas with water depth less than 40 m, T2 with water depth less than 60 m, and T3 with water depth greater than 70 m at the mouth of the Beibu Gulf.
