Short summary
This study provides a new contribution to our understanding of the coupling between the oxygen minimum zones (OMZs) and climate. It explores how idealized changes in summer and winter Indian monsoon winds affect the productivity of the Arabian Sea and the size and intensity of its OMZ. We find that intensification of Indian monsoon winds can amplify climate warming on decadal to centennial timescales.
