Title: Sea Surface Temperature in the Western and Central Indian Ocean
Authors: Obura, D.
ASFA Terms: Sea surface temperature
Issue Date: 1999
Abstract: Annual peaks in sea temperature occur in the first half of each year, as the sun moves northwards after heating the sea-surface during the southern summer. Long term records in the central Indian Ocean indicate a distinct warming trend (Chagos, Maldives) of almost 1o C over the last 30 to 50 years, leading up to the highest recorded maximum during the El Niño Southern Oscillation in early 1998.
