Impact of sea surface salinity on tropical cyclones over the Indian Ocean

It has drawn much attention how tropical cyclones (TCs) are controlled by the lower boundary ocean condition, yet less studies are focused on the other way. Furthermore, sea surface temperature (SST) has been examined comprehensively in the literature on its relationship with TCs, but sea surface salinity (SSS) receives much less attention. We will fill these gaps in TC studies and better understand TC variability from a fresh perspective.
