Abstract:

The Bay of Bengal BoB is remarkable in that its major currents change directions seasonally with the monsoons, in concert with extremely strong fluxes of fresh water from precipitation and river input. The overarching goal of the proposed effort is to quantify important processes in the fresh water budget of the BoB, including the effects of submesoscale processes and internal waves.
