  • About the Edition

    An array of surface and subsurface moorings were deployed in the Arabian Sea to provide high quality time series of local forcing and upper ocean currents, temperature, and conductivity in order to investigate the dynamics of the ocean"s response to the monsoonal forcing characteristic of the area. The moored array was deployed during R/V Thomas Thompson cruise number 40, One Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) surface mooring, two Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) surface moorings and two University of Washington (UW) Profiling Current Meter moorings were deployed. The moorings were deployed for a period of one year beginning in October 1994 as part of the Office of Naval Research (ONR) funded Arabian Sea experiment. Two six month deployments were planned. The moorings were deployed at 15.5N 61.5E (WHOI), l5.7N 61.3E (SIO), l5.3N 61.3E (SIO), l5.7N 61.7E (UW), and 15.3N 61.7E (UW). The WHOI surface mooring was outfitted with two meteorological data collection systems. A Vector Averaging Wind Recorder (VAWR) and an IMET system made measurements of wind speed and direction, sea surface temperature, air temperature, short wave radiation, long wave radiation, barometric pressure, relative humidity and precipitation. Subsurface instrumentation included Vector Measuring Current Meters (VMCMs), Multi-Variable Moored Systems (MVMS), conductivity and temperature recorders and single point temperature recorders. Expendable bathythermograph (XBT) data and CTD data were collected while in transit to the site and between mooring locations. This report describes in a general manner the work that took place during R/V Thomas Thompson cruise number 40 which was the initial deployment cruise for this moored array. A detailed description of the WHOI surface mooring and its instrumentation is provided. Information about the XBT and CTD data collected during the cruise is also included.

    The mantle is the layer located directly under the sima. It is the largest layer of the Earth, miles thick. The mantle is composed of very hot, dense rock. This layer of rock even flows like asphalt under a heavy weight. This flow is due to great temperature differences from the bottom to the top of the mantle. The most significant ports in the Arabian Sea include Karachi, Pakistan, and Mumbai, India. It has an estimated area of approximately 1,, sq miles (3,, sq km) and an estimated average depth of 8, feet (2, m). The southern border is a mapping opinion of Graphic Maps. The Arabian Sea Expedition, now five years past its field observations, is at a stage when some of its dominant themes can be summarized. Of the large range of possible topics, five are considered here: (1) Is the Arabian Sea a source or sink for carbon dioxide?; (2) Is the Arabian Sea Mother Nature's iron experiment?;.

Close to the Arabian Sea coast, the peaks of the km-long chain of the Sahyadri Ranges rise to an elevation of m in northern sector, m in the central sector, and m in the southern sector.

During the winter monsoon, besides the one‐dimensional processes controlling the mixed‐layer dynamics in the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal, the presence of mesoscale eddies in the Arabian Sea was found to be important not only in the horizontal advection of heat, but was the major signal in the velocity field [Flagg and Kim, Cited by: Arabian Sea Mixed Layer Dynamics Experiment Mooring Deployment Cruise Report WV Thomas Thompson Cruise Number 40 11 Octber Octber by Richard P.

The mixed layer depth (MLD) and sea-surface temperature (SST) in the central Arabian Sea, to a large extent, were regulated by the incoming solar radiation and wind forcing.

The. According to NCEP-NCAR data, decadal changes of the sea surface temperature in the western Arabian Sea during the South–West Monsoon can be characterized by a positive trend of C per decade (r =p \ ).

In the western Arabian Sea, the surface mixed layer extends to *30 m with a seasonally variable in depth thermocline extending below. The Arabian Sea is one of the key regions of strong air–sea interaction associated with Indian summer monsoon (Shukla, ).
