Variability of sea surface temperature over Indian Ocean during El-Nino and La-Nina years
Keywords:Sea surface temperature, Indian ocean, El-Nino and La-Nina years
Many recent studies have brought out the importance of Indian Ocean in global climate variability. In the present study, the variability of composite Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) over Indian Ocean (10º S - 20º N, 50º E - 100º E) for El-Nino and La-Nina years is analysed. The data period is 1961-97. It is observed that, the composite SSTs over Indian Ocean for El-Nino (La-Nina) years show cooling (warming) during winter season and warming (cooling) during post-monsoon season.
