Director's Message

[Prof. (Dr.) C.A. Babu]

Welcome to School of Marine Sciences, CUSAT. The unique feature of Earth within the planet system is its waterbody. The sea water which contains all chemical elements, is a mistry and provide life for millions of organisms. The life on Earth exists because of this waterbody and the atmosphere that envelops the planet. The sea and the atmosphere influence the weather and climate of Earth. Hence the study of ocean and the atmosphere is an important subject today.
