"Tropical Indian Ocean temperature plays a vital role on Indian monsoon system and also cyclone genesis. The feature and evolution mechanisms of the tropical Indian Ocean temperature between pre warming and warming period and also during Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) events that co-occurred with El NiÃ±o are studied using Simple Ocean Data Assimilation (SODA) data set. The southeastern Arabian Sea, Western Arabian Sea and Seychelles Chaogos Thermocline Ridge regions subsurface temperature anomalies are cooled and the southern gyre, south Bay of Bengal, off java regions show warming trend from surface to subsurface. During the positive IOD with co-occurred El Nino years in a climate change period (1970-2008) surface warm temperatures are extended from the Sumatra region to off the African coast in pre-monsoon season. But the subsurface temperature shows different pattern, the warming is more in the central Arabian Sea and south Bay of Bengal (BoB) area.
Muni Krishna; Tropical Indian Ocean Surface and Subsurface Temperature Fluctuations in a Climate Change Scenario" Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results. Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
