Radiolarian fluxes from the southern Bay of Bengal: sediment trap results
A study of radiolarian fluxes collected during 1991-93 from time-series sediment traps deployed at 1071 and 3010 m water depth in the southern Bay of Bengal (SBBT) yielded 40 species/groups of radiolarians. Among the order ...
Seasonal sea surface temperature contrast between the Holocene and last glacial period in the western Arabian Sea (Ocean Drilling Project Site 723A): Modulated by monsoon upwelling
Annual, summer, and winter sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in the western Arabian Sea were reconstructed through the last 22 kyr using artificial neural networks (ANNs) based on quantitative analyses of planktic foraminifera. ...
An investigation into the conditions leading to monsoon onset over Kerala
Monsoon onset over the Kerala (MOK) coast has been studied using the recently released high resolution Hamburg Ocean Atmosphere Parameters and Fluxes from Satellite data (HOAPS 3). Columnar water vapour content, sea surface ...
Hydrological structure and biological productivity of the tropical Indian Ocean
(NIO, Dona Paula, Goa (India), 2000)
Hydrological structure analyses of regions in the tropical Atlantic Ocean have consistently revealed the existence of a typical tropical structure characterized by a nitrate-depleted mixed layer above the thermocline. The ...

Physical forcing of biological productivity in the northern Arabian Sea during the northeast monsoon
Time-series observations at a nominally fixed location in the northern Arabian Sea (21 degrees N, 64 degrees E) during the Northeast Monsoon (winter, February) of 1997 showed the prevalence of cold sea-surface temperatures ...
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 ...
Past 100 Ky surface salinity-gradient response in the eastern Arabian Sea to the summer monsoon variation recorded by delta super(18)O of G. sacculifer
Northward flowing coastal currents along the western margin of India during winter-spring advect low-salinity Bay of Bengal water in to the Eastern Arabian Sea producing a distinct low-salinity tongue, the strength of which ...
BOBMEX: The Bay of Bengal Monsoon Experiment
(American Meteorological Society, 2001)
The first observational experiment under the Indian Climate Research Programme, called the Bay of Bengal Monsoon Experiment (BOBMEX), was carried out during July-August 1999. BOBMEX was aimed at measurements of important ...
Warm pool thermodynamics from the Arabian Sea Monsoon Experiment (ARMEX)
(American Geophysical Union, 2008)
Before the onset of the south Asian summer monsoon, sea surface temperature (SST) of the north Indian Ocean warms to 30-32 degrees C. Climatological mean mixed layer depth in spring (March-May) is 10-20 m, and net surface ...
