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 ...
On the dynamics of the Lakshadweep high and low in the southeastern Arabian Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 1997)
Hydrography and altimetry show that a "high" in surface topography forms off southwest India in January (midnortheast monsoon) and that a "low" forms during the southwest monsoon; the high and low, called Lakshadweep high ...
Coastal circulation in the North Indian Ocean: Coastal segment (14,S-W)
(John Wiley and Sons, New York, USA, 1998)
The article provides an overview of the circulation of the coastal regime of the North Indian Ocean stretching from southern coast of Indonesia to the coast of East Africa. A special feature of this regime is that it ...
Forcing mechanisms of the Bay of Bengal circulation
(Current Science Association, Bangalore, India, 1996)
A state-of-the-art ocean general circulation model, set up for the North Indian Ocean and driven by climatological wind stress simulates most of the observed features of the near-surface circulation of the Bay of Bengal. ...
