KLAPPENTEXT: When the International Indian Ocean Expedition was planned, the study of the changing ocean circulation under the influence of a changing wind system was one of the main objectives. A number of expeditions were planned to study the oceanic structure and circulation during different seasons in the monsoon area in order to shed light on the responses of the ocean to the monsoons. Answers were sought to such questions as how deep the monsoon currents penetrate into the ocean, how they affect the water mass structure, how they generate upwelling, and how soon the circulation responds to the wind. The first part of this monograph presents the dynamic topographies of the ocean surface f or the various seasons. A comparison with similar charts from the Atlantic and Pacific Oeeans reveals that large gyres existing in those two oceans are not f ound in the northern part of the Indian Ocean and that the conditions prevailing in the Indian Ocean are found nowhere else. The circulation in the Indian Ocean is charaeterized by a complex pattern of cyclonie and anticyclonic circulation cells.Applying these data, the second part of this study presents a theoretical model in an attempt to interpret the peculiarities of the response of the oceanic circulation to the changing monsoons. The most outstanding results are shown to be the rapid change in the circulation pattern and the rapid variation of the volume transport over short time intervals during the transition seasons. WALTER DÜING, while on the teaching staff of the University of Kiel, participated in the International Indian Ocean Expedition on board the German research vessel Meteor during the Northeast monsoon season in the winter of 1964-65. From 1967 to 1969, as a member of the Department of Oceanography at the University of Hawaii, he evaluated the accumulated oceanographic data from the IIOE and prepared the present monograph. He is currently professor of physical oceanography at the University of Miami. Size: 28,5 x 22,5 cm. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 002581
