Hydrography and circulation in the western Bay of Bengal during the northeast monsoon
(American Geophysical Union, 1996)
The Bay of Bengal, a semienclosed tropical basin that comes under the influence of monsoonal wind and freshwater influx, is distinguished by a strongly stratified surface layer and a seasonally reversing circulation. We ...
Impact of temperature inversions on SST evolution in the South-Eastern Arabian Sea during the pre-summer monsoon season
(American Geophysical Union, 2004)
Temperature inversions are known to occur in the near-surface ocean regime where salinity stratification is large enough to influence the density field. However, they have not been known as features that alter near-surface ...
Satellite observations of the northeast monsoon coastal current
(PORSEC Secretariat, Shimizu, Japan, 1992)
Satellite Infrared observations, from Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), during November 1987-February 1988 and hydrographic data from the eastern Arabian Sea are used to describe the poleward flowing coastal ...
Seasonal cycle of surface circulation in the coastal North Indian Ocean
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1988)
Monthly-mean winds and currents have been used to identify the driving mechanisms of seasonal coastal circulation in the North Indian Ocean. The main conclusions are: (i) the surface circulation off Arabia is typical of a ...
