Abstract

The covariability of wind stress and sea surface temperature is observed at high resolution over the Western Arabian Sea. Synthetic aperture radar data were acquired over the Somali Current in 2016 and 2017 during the summer monsoon season. The Somali Current, the Southern Gyre and the Great Whirl were all observed at the time of these acquisitions. Wind stress curl derived from the synthetic aperture radar data show the effects of the cold upwelled coastal water and the Somali Current on the wind stress. Significant organized large eddies are also observed east of the Somali Current.
