    In this paper, we use an observational dataset built from Argo in situ profiles to describe the main large-scale patterns of intraseasonal mixed layer depth (MLD) variations in the Indian Ocean. An eddy permitting (0.25°) ...
  • Akhil, V.P.; Lengaigne, M.; Durand, F.; Vialard, J.; Chaitanya, A.V.S.; Keerthi, M.G.; Gopalakrishna, V.V.; Boutin, J.; de Boyer, M.C. (International Journal of Remote Sensing, vol.37(5); 2016; 1089-1114)
    The Bay of Bengal (BoB) exhibits a wide range of sea surface salinity (SSS), with very fresh water induced by heavy monsoonal precipitation and river run-offs to the north, and saltier water to the south. This is a ...
  • Vijith, V.; Shetye, S.R.; Baetens, K.; Luyten, P.; Michael, G.S. (Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science, vol.173; 2016; 79-92)
    Observations in the Mandovi estuary, located on the central west coast of India, have shown that the salinity field in this estuary is remarkably time-dependent and passes through all possible states of stratification ...
  • Satyavathi, P.; Deo, M.C.; Kerkar, J.; Vethamony, P. (Marine Technology Society Journal, vol.50(1); 2016; 88-98)
    Knowledge of design waves with long return periods forms an essential input to many engineering applications, including structural design and analysis. Such extreme or long-term waves are conventionally evaluated using ...

    Intrinsic modes of variability have a significant role in driving the climatic oscillations in the oceanic processes. In this paper, we investigate the influence of an inter-annual mode of variability, the Indian Ocean ...
  • DeMello, J.R.; PrasannaKumar, S. (International Journal of Climatology, vol.36(3); 2016; 1539-1548)
    The sea surface temperature (SST) in the Bay of Bengal (BoB) during the period 1960–1995 showed a decadal cycle, riding over a warming trend. The disruption of the decadal cycle was noticed post-1995 and was followed by a ...
  • Jayakumar, S.; ManiMurali, R. (INDO-JAPAN Workshop on River mouths, Tidal Flats and Lagoons; IIT Madras; India; 15-16 September 2014). ; 2014; 78-87)
    This study comprises of numerical modelling studies on the morphology changes in the vicinity of tidal inlets. Two real case scenarios comprising of a very severe cyclonic storm and the mega Indian Ocean tsunami were ...
