Short summary
Detailed ocean currents in the southeastern tropical Indian Ocean have not been fully explained because of limited observations. Here, zonal current characteristics in the region have been studied using 64-year HYCOM results (1950–2013). This study has revealed distinctive features of current variations on various timescales. Current vertical structures, their responses to remote forcings from the Pacific and Indian oceans, and contributions of each timescale have all been investigated.
