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 (13 year average: 2003-2015) euphotic depth (m)
Months are ordered from January (upper left) to December (lower right). Euphotic depth is displayed using a continuous brown/yellow/blue colour ramp ranging from minimum (brown) to maximum (blue) euphotic depth. Euphotic depth is the depth where light intensity decreases to one percent of that at the surface.
In all parts EEZ (broken line).
