Explanation:

1. Statement 1 is incorrect: Ocean Mean Temperature (OMT) is not specifically measured up to the depth of the 26°C isotherm in the southwestern Indian Ocean during January-March. The depth of the 26°C isotherm can vary depending on the specific location and time.

2. Statement 2 is correct: OMT collected during January-March can be used in assessing whether the amount of rainfall in the monsoon will be less or more than a certain long-term mean. OMT is one of the factors considered in predicting and analyzing monsoon patterns.
