Teleconnection between the Antarctic sea ice and the tropical climate has been extensively investigated. This study examines the interannual relationship between the variability of sea ice extent in the Indian Ocean sector (20-90 degrees E) and Indian summer monsoon rainfall under the influence of the Mascarene High. Sea ice extent during April-May-June (AMJ) appears to have a significant correlation with the summer monsoon rainfall over Peninsular India region during June-July-August-September from 1979 to 2013. Composites of mean sea level pressure (MSLP), 500 hPa geopotential height, and 850 hPa wind anomalies during high and low ice phases show a positive relation between the sea ice extent and the Mascarene High, revealing that high (low) ice phase corresponds respectively to the strengthening (weakening) of the Mascarene High as well as an increase (decrease) in Indian summer monsoon rainfall. During the respective high (low) ice phase years, positive (negative) MSLP anomalies were found, particularly over the Mascarene High region, associated with the eastwards (westwards) shifts of its climatology locations. Similar features were observed at 500 hPa geopotential height anomalies. In addition, strong anticyclonic (cyclonic) anomalies in the Mascarene High region were found in 850 hPa winds, which led to corresponding strong (weak) south westerlies and thus respective positive (negative) Indian summer monsoon rainfall anomalies.
