Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies
My main research interest has been the Ocean-Atmosphere interaction with special reference to Wind Stress and Ocean Heat Content. I am particularly interested in estimating the wind stress from scatterometer and altimeter observations of sigma-0 instead of winds at 10m. I have a desire proving the importance of ocean mean temperature, compared to sea surface temperature, for cyclone and monsoon predictions. My efforts are towards understanding which type of atmospheric phenomenon interacts with which layer of the ocean.
I use a blend of in situ and remote sensing observations, particularly, from altimetry and scatterometry. My emphasis is on the study of Ocean Eddies, Equatorial Indian Ocean phenomena, Mixed Layer Dynamics and Thermodynamic, and on role of Atmosphere on CO2 variability.
I love teaching and guiding students. Artificial Neural Network Technique is used in deriving ocean and atmospheric parameters from satellite observations.
