Abstract: We have forced an Ocean General Circulation Model (OGCM, MOM_4) with surface observations at the WHOI mooring site in the Arabian Sea blended with other data and compared the thermal and salinity structures of the resulting simulations with observations. The model is successful in reproducing observations during January-July 1995, but does poorly during the southwest monsoon season. We have analysed model simulations in detail to study the thermal structure and mixed layer variability and the performance of the model at the buoy location in the Arabian Sea.
