I must record with a sense of utmost satisfaction of the overwhelming response received for Indomer's Monsoon Offer to carry out coastal investigations for Government and Private sector projects. Indomer considers this as an opportunity to be a part of Government's initiatives and efforts to give a new dimension to the development of infrastructural facilities on the ocean front. Now, with the new Government taking over the reign, the lull situation reported in the last "Float" will disappear as a thing of the past...

I share the great pleasure that Indomer has completed its sweet 16 on the 14th April 2014, and galloping into the 17th year of the service. I personally take this occasion to thank all patrons from various industries for extending great support. I always feel proud that Indomer is one among the very few oceanographic organizations in India owned by Indians. Over the last 16 years, we carry the glory of completing 500 projects out of which 70 are the Marine EIA projects facilitated in getting clearances from MoEF......

Coastline is a god-sent gift and blessing to mankind and it contributes more than 90% of trade and commerce to the global economy. India has a coastline of some 7600 km studded with 13 major ports and innumerable number of non-major and minor ports encompassing the ten coastal states. Coastline is such an invaluable asset and needs to be protected, preserved and above all studied in its entirety. While we have several institutions including IITs, RECs etc., offering courses on physical oceanography, ocean engineering, marine structures and some short term courses, engineering in its real sense and this is a big void in our academic system. ....
