During the summer months, the relatively cool oceanic high pressure areas become dominant across the hemisphere.
Weather within the central and western core of an oceanic high is usually excellent with plenty of VMC.
Mienert and Schultheiss  compared physical properties of marine sediments at two (near coastal) drill sites in oceanic high
and low biogenic productivity zones.
These fishermen had reached Indian shores due to oceanic high
tides, where they were arrested by the Indian authorities.
One can argue that oceanic highs
such as spreading ridges provide a principal mechanism of ophiolite emplacement in forearc regions.
