The long-term goal of our research program is to understand sub-seasonal processes, from small-scale mixing to the reversal of monsoonal currents, in the Bay of Bengal BoB and around Sri Lanka and the role of regional air-sea interactions in their dynamics. The research is conducted in the context of the ASIRI-EBOB ONR DRI, and in conjunction with the ongoing ASIRI-RAWI project, which is funded under the Northern Arabian Sea circulation autonomously researched NAScar DRI. The PIs seek long term collaboration with Indian Ocean countries IO, through partnerships and capacity building.
