Numerical simulation of seasonal variations in circulations of the Bay of Bengal

The seasonal variations in circulation at different layers of the Bay of Bengal (BOB) basin have been studied using multilayered regional ocean modeling system (ROMS). The model is simulated with climatological comprehensive ocean-atmospheric data set (COADS) wind and thermal forcing until annual cycle is reached. The northward flowing western boundary current (WBC) during spring and southward flowing east India coastal...
