The course consisted of an overview of prominent observational features in the North Indian Ocean (NIO), and then focused on understanding the basic, dynamical processes that generate them. Theory was presented hierarchically, by first obtaining solutions to simple models in idealized situations and then using these solutions to interpret realistic solutions to state-of-the-art, ocean general circulation models (OGCMs).
The principal lecturer was Dr. J.P. McCreary, who was supported by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), of which NIO is a constituent laboratory, under its Distinguished Foreign Scientist programme. Other lecturers were Dr. S.R. Shetye, Prof. P.N. Vinayachandran, Dr. M. Ravichandran, and Dr. D. Shankar.
