Short summary
Using measured, modeled and reanalysis wave data and reanalysis wind data, we show that the Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) plays a role in the variability of wave climate of the eastern Arabian Sea (AS). The change in wind field over the AS due to IOD influences the generation or dissipation of wave field and hence causes the decrease in northwest short period waves during positive IOD and increase during negative IOD.
