To disseminate knowledge on the waters around India

Vision:
To understand and predict the impacts on coastal environment for advising protective measures for coastal health.

  • Identification of land use/ land cover changes (Gujarat and Goa) due to anthropogenic activities and its impact on coastal zone
  • Mapping of coastal and estuarine waters off Goa for harmful bloom forming algal species (HAB)
  • Studying the transport mechanism and arrival of tar ball / oil residue to the Goa coast during monsoon – a pilot study
  • Waste assimilative capacity of select Indian coastal waters
  • Geospatial analysis of coastal data collected in GoK and Goa using GIS database
