In the present paper, we have carried out analysis of surface chlorophyll-a concentration in the seas around India obtained using the Indian Remote Sensing satellite IRS-P4 Ocean Colour Monitor (OCM) data. The focus was given to southwest Bay of Bengal where such studies are scanty. The study portraits the chlorophyll-a pattern during July 1999-June 2000.(More)
Tsunami is a system of ocean gravity waves formed as a result of large-scale disturbance of the sea floor that occurs in a relatively short duration of time. The Indian Ocean is likely to be affected by tsunamis generated mainly by earthquakes from the two potential source regions, the Andaman-Nicobar-Sumatra Island Arc and the Makran Subduction Zone.

[1] Beginning in 2006, the Indian Ocean experienced climatologically anomalous conditions due to large-scale coupled air-sea interactions that influenced the surface circulation of the equatorial Indian Ocean. Here we present evidence from observations as well as a general circulation model to demonstrate that spring Wyrtki jets (WJ) were weak during the(More)
The Indian Tsunami Early Warning System (ITEWS) based at Indian National Center for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), Hyderabad is responsible for issuing tsunami advisories to authorized officials from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) in India. The centre operates on 24x7 basis and has the functions of monitoring(More)
The Ocean Data and Information System (ODIS) is a one stop shop for providing data and information on physical, chemical and biological parameters of ocean and coasts on various spatial and temporal domains that is vital for both research and operational oceanography. It is an end-to-end ocean data management system, developed by exploiting the advances in(More)
