Diagram from 'te ara" showing the continental shelf. In many places around New Zealand the continental shelf is wide, and while relative to the deepest ocean it isn't deep, it appears deep from the human perspective.
Just days before a team of researchers set out to conduct fieldwork in the East China Sea, Typhoon Morakot -- one of the most destructive storms ever to hit Taiwan -- made landfall on the island, causing widespread damage and drastically altering the flow of water along the nearby continental shelf. Their research may offer a new understanding of how chaotic and powerful currents form in the East China Sea, and could also reveal how large storms affect those currents.
