Professor Amit Tandon and the rest of the lab had strong participation in the recently concluded Ocean Sciences Meeting at San Diego, CA. Spread across 6 days in mid-February, it was definitely a good experience for the group to be a part of this event by presenting their published/on-going work as well as attending lots of other talks from a plethora of topics being discussed. Following are the details of the talks/posters given by the lab members:

a) Monsoon Intra-seasonal oscillations in the Bay of Bengal: Amit Tandon and co-authors

b) Submesoscale temperature inversions in the Bay of Bengal during the winter monsoon: Sanjiv Ramachandran, Amit Tandon and co-authors

c) Atmospheric Cold Pools in the Bay of Bengal: A Fuzzy Logic Approach: Jared Buckley, Amit Tandon

d) Long Wave Measurement Corrections for the OMNI Buoy Network: Jossia Joseph, Amit Tandon and other co-authors

e) The 2018 Monsoon Onset from Ship-based Measurements across the Air-Sea Interface: Emily Shroyer, Amit Tandon and co-authors

f) Basin-scale Diapycnal Mixing Rates in the Bay of Bengal Inferred from Freshwater Balance: J Sree Lekha, Debasis Sengupta, Emily Shroyer and Amit Tandon.

g) Nutrient Supply Caused by Submesoscale and Microscale Mixing Processes in the Upstream Kuroshio: Takeyoshi Nagai, Amit Tandon and co-authors

h) The Barreirinhas Eddies Conundrum: Why Are These Super Anticyclones at Low Latitudes so Long-lived: Iury T Simoes-Sousa and co-authors

i) On the Role of Turbulent Mixing Produced by Vertical Shear Between the Brazil Current and the Intermediate Western Boundary Current by Caue Lazaneo and co-authors

j) On the variability of Arabian Sea mixing and its energetics: Shikha Singh and co-authors

k) On the Sea Surface Temperature variability and mesoscale dispersion in the Bay of Bengal during 2015 and 2019 monsoon as tracked by drifters: Siddhant Kerhalkar, Amit Tandon and co-authors
