Chasing Freshwater in the Bay of Bengal
As part of ASIRI, the Air-Sea Interaction Regional Initiative funded by ONR, we are exploring the role of freshwater on air-sea fluxes in order to improve understanding of the South Asian Monsoons.
We are on a research cruise on board the R/V Roger Revelle from August 23 to September 21, 2015. Scientists from several institutions including University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, Oregon State University, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, National Institue of Ocean Technology Chennai and National Institute of Oceanography Vishakapatnam are participating in this cruise. The Mahadevan Lab of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are reporting on this blog.
