Oceanic response to cyclone moving in different directions over Indian Seas using IRG model
Keywords:IRG (IITM Reduced Gravity) Model, Storm track, Upwelling, Inertia gravity wave
The IITM Reduced Gravity (IRG) ocean model is employed to investigate the influence of tropical cyclone moving in different directions in Indian Seas. Some of the observed storm tracks in the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal are considered which have northward and westward movement. Sensitivity study is carried out for initial position of the storm at (90° E, 10° N) and moving in different directions. For westward moving cyclones the right bias in the model upper-layer thickness deviation (ULTD) field disappears. In an another experiment of westward moving cyclone originating at different latitudes, the ocean response is found to be sensitive to the Coriolis parameter (f). The surface currents as well as ULTD reduce, as f increases. The amplitude and the wavelength of inertia gravity wave increase with decrease in f, in the wake of the cyclone. This study helps to determine the upwelling region arising due to movement of the cyclone.
