Monsoonal intraseasonal oscillations in the ocean heat content over the surface layers of the Bay of Bengal
Description: Two major findings of this study are i) the presence of a robust intraseasonal oscillation (ISO) signal in the Bay of Bengal (BOB) subsurface ocean heat content (OHC) anomaly, this ISO signal propagates northward at the rate of roughly one degree latitude per day and ii) a lag of roughly 4 to 6 days between the appearance of this signal in the surface wind speed and followed by the OHC anomaly. The availability of long-term daily data sets for the OHC made it possible to examine the presence of ISO over the BOB. [Source: Journal of Marine Systems]
