Short summary
Oceanic eddies are ubiquitous in the ocean, and their dynamics are key components in the evolution of water column properties. This study combines sea surface height and the thermohaline field to understand the seasonal variation of eddy activity and associated heat/salt transport in the Bay of Bengal. Eddy activity in the Bay of Bengal has evident seasonal variation; the eddy-induced heat and salt transport in different seasons also changes substantially.
