Eddies off the Somali coast during the southwest monsoon
Bruce, John G.
MetadataShow full item record
The development and decay of the large eddy in the northern Somali Basin and its smaller associated eddies each southwest monsoon in the northwestern Indian Ocean has been monitored for four consecutive years by a time series of temperature sections obtained along the tanker sea lane across the Somali Basin. The evidence suggests that the large eddy first forms between 4°N to 12°N during late May and tends to remain approximately in this location throughout the entire southwest monsoon.

Liu, Lingling; Huang, Rui Xin; Wang, Fan (John Wiley & Sons, 2018-07-02)Based on the characteristics of oceanic circulation in a monsoon‐dominated ocean, a new framework of annual ventilation, including subduction and obduction, is postulated and applied to the North Indian Ocean based on both ...
Near-inertial kinetic energy budget of the mixed layer and shear evolution in the transition layer in the Arabian Sea during the monsoons Majumder, Sudip; Tandon, Amit; Rudnick, Daniel L.; Farrar, J. Thomas (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-09-26)We present the horizontal kinetic energy (KE) balance of near-inertial currents in the mixed layer and explain shear evolution in the transition layer using observations from a mooring at 15.26° N in the Arabian Sea during ...
