|Abstract: ||There are several major areas where applied oceanography needs to be addressed in the Indian Ocean and these may generally be summarized as follows:
• Climate change and its impacts on the coastal morphology and infrastructure
• Weather patterns driven by oceanic parameters, and their subsequent socioeconomic
• Pollution arising from sea transportation and land based sources and how these
affect marine ecosystems;
• Use of oceanography in prediction and monitoring of marine resources (including
fisheries, seaweeds, minerals etc).
Some of these areas are already being addressed at various scales by projects, state
governments and Non Governmental Organizations.
To achieve maximum success in the areas mentioned above, the basic requirements
include information and data management infrastructure (all networked) at national,
regional and international level.|
