Short summary
Our investigations give detailed insight on the seasonally changing current system at intermediate depth in the Arabian Sea that is influenced by the monsoon. The changing currents influence the oxygen transport in the interior ocean and thus allow us to draw conclusions on the maintenance and seasonal variability of the upper part of the oxygen minimum zone in the Arabian Sea.
