Abstract:

Investigate and quantify the oceanographic processes that exchange low salinity surface and upper thermocline water of the Bay of Bengal with the salty Arabian Sea and tropical Indian Ocean belt, including their seasonal and interannual variability and the impact on the regional structure of the thermohaline stratification within the two northern embayments of the Indian Ocean.
