Elements of a coastal ocean forecasting system for India
MetadataShow full item record
After about four decades of investment in infrastructure for ocean research, an appropriate initiative for India now would be to build a coastal ocean forecasting system to support the country's myriad activities in its Exclusive Economic Zone. This article outlines the elements of such a system, and identifies the steps that will need be taken to acquire ability in physical, water-quality, and ecosystem forecasting during the next decade. It is suggested that a research programme be initiated at existing research/academic centres, and steps be taken to harness the private enterprise to build the forecasting system on schedule.
