|Objectives||To seek tidal mixing signatures in Indonesian seas from satellite sea surface temperature data|
Figure 1. Tidal mixing signatures of fortnightly signal in the Indonesian Seas. High amplitude (red) represents strong tidal mixing: Sulu Sill and along the Lesser Sunda Island chain (Bali to Timor islands). Marginal amplitude is observed in the Seram Sea region. Meanwhile, Banda Sea does not exhibit a strong tidal mixing [Ray and Susanto, 2016].
