New Delhi , June 16

THE Union Cabinet today gave its approval for undertaking design and development of the Oceansat-2 Mission that entails building and launching a remote sensing satellite with ocean colour monitor (OCM).

With the realisation of the Oceansat-2 Mission, India would have the wherewithal to cover many applications pertaining to the ocean and meteorology.

Among these applications, fisheries, coastal zone mapping, ocean process studies, inputs for operational numerical weather prediction, ocean state forecasting, input to ocean models as well as for the tropical cyclone monitoring and prediction are likely to get a further boost.
