Science Organisation (ESSO)

Q. What is ESSO and what is its purpose.

The Earth System Science Organisation (ESSO) established in 2007 as an
executive arm of Ministry of Earth Sciences. It has three major branches of
earth sciences viz.,

(i) Ocean Science & Technology
(ii) Atmospheric Science & Technology and
(iii) Geoscience and Technology.

The sole purpose of the endeavor was to address holistically various aspects
relating to earth processes for understanding the variability of earth system
and for improving forecast of the weather, climate and hazards.

Primarily aimed to develop and improve capability to forecast
weather, climate and hazard related phenomena for societal, economic and
environmental benefits including addressing aspects relating to climate change
science, climate services and integrated Himalayan meteorology, the ESSO is also
responsible for development of technology towards the exploration and
exploitation of marine resources in a sustainable way for the socio-economic
benefit of the society by taking into account the global developments in the
field of marine environment.

Q. What is the vision of ESSO and how it works?

The overall vision of the ESSO is to excel in knowledge and
technology enterprise for the earth system science realm towards socio-economic
benefit of the Indian sub-continent and in the Indian Ocean region.

It has three
major components:

  1. Provide scientific and technical support for both academic and applied
    research in Earth System sciences as a whole comprising the atmosphere,
  2. Provide the Nation with the best possible services in forecasting the
    monsoons and other weather/climate parameters, ocean state including early
    warnings to natural disasters like storm surge, earthquakes, tsunamis and
    other phenomena through well integrated programs.
  3. Support science and technology development for exploration and
    exploitation of ocean resources (living and non-living), ensuring their
    sustainable utilization.

Q. How does ESSO Work?

The institutions, viz. India Meteorological Department (IMD),
National Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (NCMRWF) and Indian
Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), National Centre for Antarctica and
Ocean Research (NCAOR), National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT), Indian
National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), Centre for Marine
Living Resources (CMLRE) and Integrated Coastal and Marine Area Management (ICMAM)
were grouped under the ESSO.

These institutions are under Earth System Science
Organization (ESSO), managed by the ESSO Council. Each centre has been created
with a specific well defined mandate. The ESSO operates through ESSO council, an
apex body to formulate policies and plans, and provide program directions for
the Centres/Units and review the implementation of programmers.
