Effect of Shantung Peninsula on the development of mean upwind flow in the Yellow Sea in winter is analysed using a simple model. The results indicate that the disturbances generated by the Shantung Peninsula have a scale much larger than the basin scale whereas disturbances, if any, generated similarly on the other side of the trough has much smaller scale. The effect of Shantung Peninsula thus dominates over the whole basin and deflects westward the otherwise northward upwind flow.
