Short summary
Observations of the sea surface temperature in the Arabian Sea show exceptional warming before the onset of the Indian Ocean summer monsoon. The sea surface temperature change is mainly caused by sea surface heat flux forcing, horizontal advection, and vertical entrainment. Here, we quantify the contribution of those factors to the Arabian Sea warm pool using heat budget analysis and highlight how large-scale ocean modes control its change.
