 Mangroves: Arabian sea Forests
There are few remaining mangrove stands on the Yemen coast of the Arabian Sea and the entire eastern shoreline of the Arabian region therefore hosts very restricted mangrove habitats.

Binding the sediment through which the creeks curve and snake their way to the sea and storing the carbon that holds the key to the mangrove’s astounding productivity, are the mangrove trees themselves.

 The Arabian Sea - Classic CZCS Scenes
The area of the images is the Arabian Sea, on the northwest side of the Indian Ocean.
The peak of the monsoon season in the Arabian Sea occurs in July, resulting in heavy cloud cover that obscured most of the area from view.
One reason that the Arabian Sea is of particular interest is that some models of the Earth's future climate, as global warming influences the oceans and atmosphere, indicate that many patterns of productivity in the ocean will become more "monsoonal"; that is, more like the seasonal patterns observed in the Arabian Sea.

 Effect of the onset of southwest monsoon on the atmospheric electric conductivity over the Arabian Sea
Measurements of the atmospheric electric conductivity and small, intermediate, and large ion concentrations made at four locations over the Arabian Sea onboard ORV Sagarkanya in the premonsoon and monsoon seasons during the Arabian Sea Monsoon Experiment in 2002–2003 are reported.
It is proposed that the enhancement in conductivity associated with the onset of monsoon is due to the highly charged large ions produced by the bubble bursting process at the air-sea interface caused by the breaking waves during the high-wind-speed periods over the Arabian Sea.
The correlation coefficient between the large ion concentration and wind speed measured at Sagarkanya is found to increase from 0.41, 0.16, and 0.23 in the premonsoon and two monsoon periods to 0.56 during the monsoon onset period.

The summer monsoon experiments (ISMEX-73, MONSOON-77 and MONEX-79) conducted over the Arabian Sea have revealed a dramatic drop in SST over the warm pool in association with the onset vortex and/or the onset of the summer monsoon (Rao, 1990).
With the light fields, Arnone and his team discovered that, indeed a different PAR cycle was operational in the Arabian Sea than in other oceans of the world.
For instance, because cloud cover and aerosols are different from one area to another within the basin, the southern regions of the Arabian Sea have a different annual cycle of light intensity than those of the northern regions.

During the northern hemisphere's summer months, the difference in temperature between the land and sea surfaces in Eurasia creates strong monsoon winds that blow from the Arabian Sea eastwards towards India.
In the western Arabian Sea, near the coasts of Oman, Somalia and Yemen, the displaced surface water is replaced by water rising from the bottom of the Arabian Sea.
The researchers found that this was linked to changes in the strength of the winds and temperature of the sea surface in the western Arabian Sea, which they monitored over the same period.
