ScopeRecent discovery of new climate modes and development of basin-scale and regional observing systems in the Indian Ocean advance researches on ocean variations relevant to climate variability. In addition, inauguration of international research programs in the Indian Ocean, such as IIOE-2 and EIOURI, leads high expectation of related studies in earnest. This session invites papers on physical, biogeochemical, and ecological aspects in the Indian Ocean and relations among these elements of the ocean variations, to facilitate integrated understanding of the Indian Ocean variability.
