dc.description.abstractMean atmospheric circulation, moisture budget and net heat exchange were studied during a pre-monsoon period (18th March to 3rd May, 1988), making use of the data collected on board "Akademik Korolev" in the central equatorial and southern Arabian Sea region. The net heat exchange (Rn) is found to be about 20 W m-2 for a small area (0-4 degrees N; 55-60 degrees E), 50% less than the climatological value. The mean value of net radiation (140 W m-2) is less than the climatological value, which was due to higher cloud amount. The higher SST enhanced both the latent and sensible heat fluxes. The mean atmospheric circulation obtained from the upper air data is quite convincing. The mean exchange coefficient (Ce) estimated from the moisture budget is about 1.0 x 10-3 for a wind speed of 4 m s-1. This value is slightly lower than that obtained by the usual methods
