Oceans play a significant role in the national development process as (i) the driving force for monsoons,(ii) a potential source of food, energy and drugs (iii) a cost effective medium for transport and (iv) a strategic space.

Disasters such as cyclones originate in oceanic regions. Enrichment of the Oceanic Knowledge base, improved forecast of weather and climate as well as sustainable development of ocean eco systems and coastal areas are essential to improve the quality of life on the Planet Earth

The Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), has a mission i.e. to provide the best possible ocean information and advisory services to the society, industry, government and scientific community through sustained ocean observations and constant improvement through systematic and focussed research.

Confluence of Ocean Science, Ocean Observing Systems (both Satellite based and In-situ) and Information Technology is vital to the realisation of this mission.
