Abstract:

The overarching goals are to investigate the roles of vertical and lateral turbulent mixing processes in setting the spatial and temporal variability of temperature and salinity observed in the upper ocean surface of the Bay of Bengal. Understanding such processes will help improve the parametrization of momentum and heat fluxes across the air-sea interface in coupled circulation models as well as enhance the current capabilities of monsoon predictions.
