Groups

Ocean Observations, Modeling and Data Assimilation (OMDA) Group
Mr. E. Pattabhi Rama Rao, Scientist-G is designated as Group Director, Ocean Observations, Modeling and Data Assimilation Group with oversight of two (2) divisions comprising the following key responsibilities and scientific personnel:
Scientist-G Group Director, OMDA

Scientist-E

Scientist-F & Division Head, MDA

Key Responsibilities :
  • Design and implement an integrated ocean and coastal observing network in support of institutional and national mandate, dovetailing into the international Global Ocean Observing System CGOOS) framework.
  • Ocean observing platforms to be managed include Argo, Drifters, Coastal Current Meter Moorings, Equatorial Current Meter Moorings, XBT, Tsunami Buoys, Tide Gauges, GNSS, Flux Mooring, uCTDs, Gliders, UAVs, Coastal Buoys, Wave Rider Buoys, Ship-based AWS, Wave Heigh Meters, new platforms, etc. .
  • Implement process-specific observational campaigns and data analysis, to enable better representation of ocean, coastal and atmosphere processes in numerical models (Coastal Monitoring, Satellite Oceanography,Monsoon Mission, Deep Ocean Mission, etc.) .
