The ocean-atmospheric phenomenon called Double Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (DITCZ) investigated by the Researchers at the National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, have investigated over the Western Indian Ocean, for its meteorological characteristics. What is DITCZ? A Double Inter Tropical Convergence Zone is a phenomenon featured with two ITCZs, one at each side of the equator. About 10 degrees north or south of the equator there forms a region of convective activity which is called the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). Sometimes, on the opposite side of the equator, another ITCZ forms which is short-lived (November-December) in the western Indian Ocean and this phenomenon is called Double Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (DITCZ). When and Where are DITCZs found? The most identifiable double ITCZ is found over the eastern Pacific during boreal spring, mainly in March and April. Weak signals of a double ITCZ exist over the Indian Ocean during November, but only i
