- INCOIS is the key coordinator for the SATCORE programme during the XI five year plan.
- The programme is internationally linked to the global initiatives such as ChloroGIN and Indian Ocean GOOS.
- The programme envisages establishment of
- Long term time-series in situ observations of key physical and bio-geo-chemical parameters in the indian coastal waters.
- Generation and web-dissemination of the near real-time satellite data products-chlorophyll, SST, Kd-490 and TSM.
- Thus complementing and supplementing in situ observations with remote sensing databases.
- Near real-time acquisition, processsing & dissemination of Satellite data products at a appropriate spatial & temporal resolutions.
- Establishment of Time-Series Satations in coastal waters of india for the measurements of in situ data.
- Establishment of a centralised laboratory for analysis of water samples.
- Validation of ocean colour satellite data products.
- Algorithm development for the retrieval of optically active substances (OAS) using ocean colour remote sensing.
- Applications of ocean colour remote sensing data for fisheries, HABs, Oil Spills, Ecosystem studies, etc.
- Bio-optical modelling of coastal ecosystem.
