infrared radiation. The remainder is transported southward out of the region by the Ekman currents during June–September ( Levitus 1988 ). The heat transport modulates the Indian Ocean sea surface temperature (SST) and heat content ( Godfrey et al. 1995 ; Garternicht and Schott 1997 ), and also may affect the interannual variability of the Asian monsoon ( Loschnigg and Webster 2000 ). For these reasons, a good knowledge of the change in the oceanic heat budget and transport is of great importance for

using the Reynolds and Smith (1994) weekly SST analyses gave far smaller SST variability related to the convective ISV (e.g., Jones et al. 1998 ; Shinoda et al. 1998 ; Woolnough et al. 2000 ). This is due in part to the screening effect of the cloudiness that prevents the estimation of the SST by satellite measurements in the infrared atmospheric window. This screening effect likely reduces the estimated ISV of the SST by masking the surface cooling during convective events. During winter 1999
