This report discusses various functionalities of tool developed for use by Naval Operations Data Processing and Analysis Centre (NODPAC) a wing of Indian Navy. The data for this tool is obtained from the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Naval Operations Data Processing and Analysis Centre (NODPAC) and individual records of International Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Dataset (ICOADS). These data sets are processed, quality controlled and merged to form a unique data set for enhancing the marine met climatology of Indian Ocean. The IMD and NODPAC data are compared with the unique records from COADS and duplicates are eliminated. With addition of around 12% unique records to ICOADS data, enhanced climatology is regenerated. With this base data, Graphic User Interface (GUI) based tool is build for visualizing parameters viz., SST, SLP, Wind, Relative Humidity, SSS and bathymetry. This tool has capability to generate climatology dynamically between any chosen periods apart from visualizing various plots which are useful for Navy while at sea. Also provision for adding newly observed marine met data is provided making this most robust tool for use by the Indian Navy.
