Evaporation from the surface of the North Indian Ocean is estimated following the aerodynamic approach The influence of the southwest monsoon and the northeast monsoon is significant giving rise to maximum evaporation from the sea surface due to strong wind field and high saturation deficit respectively An annual maximum evaporation of 160 cm is observed in the southern regions Due to the advancement of the southwest monsoon evaporation maximum in the Arabian Sea is reached earlier by 1 month than in the Bay of Bengal while the reverse is the case during the northeast monsoon
