Abstract

The ocean covers approximately 71% of the earth surface and it significantly influences the global and regional climates and the weather and monsoon systems. Climate variability and its socio-economic impact clearly emphasizes the need to understand the system to enable better forecasts. Unlike land, where the operational networks of meteorological observations placed all over the world have enabled us to monitor changes in the global atmosphere, the global coverage of the subsurface observations in the ocean is largely under sampled. With the advent of Argo and moored buoy programs, there was a considerable increase in the amount of oceanic data during the last decade. However, the data is still inadequate to understand the dynamics and thermodynamics of the ocean on different spatial and temporal scale.
