The Indian Ocean ocean–atmosphere subseasonal variability occurs on many time scales and is evident in many regions of the Indian Ocean. 1 For example, in situ and satellite observations have found strong intraseasonal sea surface temperature (SST) swings associated with

but with surface meteorological variables determined from an advanced objective analysis. Satellite observations from the Special Sensor Microwave Imager (SSM/I; Wentz 1997 ) and the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), along with outputs from NCEP2 and ECMWF-OP, were objectively synthesized to produce an optimal estimate for the surface meteorological variables. Currently, the OAFlux project has produced daily estimates of surface latent and sensible heat fluxes over the global ice
