Abstract
The distinguishing characteristic that sets the Arabian Sea apart from other oceanic regions is the regular oscillation
of monsoonal atmospheric conditions that produces predictable periods of upwelling or convective mixing, with
associated biological response, during the Southwest and Northeast monsoons, respectively. This oscillation is also
evident in cycles of standing stocks of zooplankton and micronekton. The vertical distribution and spatial pattern of
