is the only large tropical ocean that is bounded by land in three directions. It is therefore the ocean that experiences the strongest influence of the monsoons. The monsoon circulation and the trade winds over the Indian Ocean induce unusually shallow thermocline in the middle of the basin, known as the Seychelles–Chagos thermocline ridge ( Vialard et al. 2009 ), and strong eastward surface current along the equator, the Wyrtki jet, which appears semiannually during the monsoon transition
