Special Issue: The Indonesian Seas

On the Cover: Satellite-based data are used to construct the view of sea surface temperature (SST) and surface chlorophyll a for the southeast monsoon months of June through August when winds blow towards Southeast Asia. The lower panel shows the seafloor morphology of the Indonesian seas and the primary pathways followed by the Pacific to Indian Ocean flow—the Indonesian throughflow—as defined by water mass characteristics. Gordon (this issue) discusses these images and provides scale information.
