This section details the oceanographic characteristics within Myanmar’s maritime limits,
from mean monthly sea surface temperature, temperature fronts, chlorophyll-a, net primary
productivity, salinity and surface currents, which can be used to derive ecologically
important areas for fisheries management and biodiversity conservation.
Mean monthly (4 year average: 2008-2011) satellite-derived surface wind speed (m s -1 )
Months are ordered from January (upper left) to December (lower right). Surface wind speeds are displayed using a continuous green/yellow/red colour ramp ranging from minimum (green) to maximum (red) wind speed.
In all parts EEZ (broken line).
