Coastal Ocean Sensing and Forecasting for Fisheries Management: Practical Systems for India

Principal Investigator Pierre Lermusiaux

The research thrust is on developing and providing ocean physical and biogeochemical forecasting products and technologies for coastal fisheries management in India. Our modeling systems will provide ocean field and uncertainty estimates, optimal sensing guidance, coastal ecosystem-based scenario analyses, and technical decision aides. We also focus on building practical systems and products that are tailored to the Indian context and usable for local commercial and societal applications involving fisheries but also coastal zone management, monitoring, ocean engineering, financial hedging, and re-insurance.
