Short summary
Ocean profiling observation in the Indian Ocean is not sufficient. We conducted a hydrographic survey on the Carlsberg Ridge, which is a mid-ocean ridge in the northwest Indian Ocean, to obtain snapshots of sectional temperature, salinity, and density fields by combining the ARGO data. The results show mesoscale eddies located along the specific ridge and the existence of a west-propagating planetary wave. The results provide references in the regional ocean circulation.
