The purpose of research is to understand the global change, in particular to assess its effect to, and its driving caused by, the Indonesian archipelago. To detect the extreme phenomena, the normal condition, at first, should be understood. For this purpose we are analyzing the long period ocean data observed by the satellites: Sea Surface Temperature (SST), zonal-component of wind speed (U-WS) and Rainfall Rate (RR). This gIndonesian Ocean Archive (IOA)h website provides our ocean observed results to the world and drive the understandings about the Indonesian ocean phenomena.

The research targets are considered as below:
  1. Detecting EL-Nino/La-Nina signals;
  2. Mechanisms of long time/scale phenomena: Indian Ocean Dipole Moment;
  3. Up-welling along the Java coast;
  4. Indonesian Through Flow (ITF).
This is the cooperative research between the Center of Remote Sensing and Ocean Science (CReSOS) of the Udayana University (UNUD) and Yamaguchi University (YU).

Acknowledgment: We express our sincere gratitude for those institutes to let us use their data and software.
