Recognizing the importance of coupled ocean atmosphere processes for understanding the variability of earth, the Government of India established MoES by bringing the meteorologicalagencies and ocean development department under one umbrella. The creation of MoES aims at looking at the planet in a holistic way in as much as understanding of interplay of earth dynamics and systems phenomenon. It also strives to provide applications such as forecasting weather / ocean state, future climate scenarios, natural hazards (earthquakes, tsunami, coastal erosion, landslides), assessment of macro resource provinces both on land and in ocean, macro assessment of ground water potential, interplay of weather elements in evolution of continental morphology etc. This planet offers immense opportunities and challenges through its varying nature manifested through weather and more evidently in the ever-dynamic oceanic and atmospheric conditions. While, common human perception distinguishes the tera firma, the oceans and the atmosphere from each other, we are slowly learning to look at these three systems as a part of a bigger earthsystem entity.
