Résumé: 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 development; • Weather patterns driven by oceanic parameters, and their subsequent socioeconomic impacts; • 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.
