This data refers to details on monthly, annual and seasonal frequency of depressions and deep depressions (low pressure weather systems with associated wind speed 32-59 Km per hour) which formed over the north Indian ocean (Arabian Sea + Bay of Bengal) during the period 1951-2012.
The data refers to details on climatological normals of district wise rainfall (in mm) calculated with the data for the period 1951-2000.
Area Weighted Monthly, Seasonal And Annual Rainfall (in mm) For 36 Meteorological Subdivisions from 1951 onwards. Subdivision rainfall data is calculated as area weighted average of district wise rainfall.
Monthly, seasonal and annual rainfall (in mm) area weighted average for the whole country starting from 1901 onwards. This data set is based on more than 2000 rainguage data spread over the country.
INCOIS, being the central repository for marine data in the country, receives voluminous oceanographic data in real time, from a variety of in-situ and remote sensing observing systems. The Ocean Information Bank provides information on physical, chemical, biological and geological parameters of ocean and coasts on spatial and temporal domains that is vital for both research and operational oceanography.
Argo is a global array of 3,000 free-drifting profiling floats that will measure the temperature and salinity of the upper 2000 m of the ocean. This will allow continuous monitoring of the climate state of the ocean, with all data being relayed and made publicly available within hours after collection. Conceptually, Argo builds on the existing upper-ocean thermal networks, extending their spatial and temporal coverage, depth range and accuracy, and enhancing them through addition of salinity and velocity measurements.
