Abstract: Meteorological parameters at a station (9-degrees-N, 68-degrees-E) in the east central Arabian Sea showed the influence of a severe cyclonic storm that formed east of Sri Lanka in the first week of May 1979. One dimensional forcing functions, such as, free and forced mixing were important for regulating thermal structure in this area during the disturbed days (phase I: 2 to 14 May 1979). But, this was marginal during the calm days (phase II: 25 May to 4 June). The results of the study were utilised to model the mixed layer temperature (MLT) and mixed layer depth (MLD) following Niiler and Kraus (1977). During phase I, simulated and observed MLD and MLT matched fairly well. The differences between the observed and simulated MLT during phase II were attributed to lateral advective cooling.
