    Arabian Sea is in general biologically most productive region in the North Indian Ocean, in particular eastern Arabian Sea. However, there is a lack of pre-existing studies performed to reveal the seasonal and interannual variability of the primary production. The potential role of atmospheric and oceanographic events on promoting the distinct development of phytoplankton in the northern and southern parts of eastern Arabian Sea regions was investigated in this article. In order to study the temporal variability of the bio-physical parameters, we used 12 years (1998-2009) of Sea WiFS chlorophyll-a data and 10 years (2000-2009) of QuickSCAT wind stress data (zonal and meridional) as two important forcing parameters. Relative impacts of the Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD), associated with the global climatic event of El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) on biophysical parameters of east.. View More»
