The Department of Meteorology and Oceanography, Andhra University is first of its kind in Southeast Asia to have initiated teaching and research programmes in Meteorology and Oceanography which is established in the year 1948 to educate the students in Oceanic and Atmospheric sciences. After 75 years of its fruitful service to the nation in the supplying of trained manpower, the department still occupies its unique position in India to offer advanced courses of national importance. In the recent years, the department is in collaboration with national and international institutions for research work. Significant contributions include: Identification and estimation of Upwelling zones in North Indian Ocean Dynamics involved in the formation of Sand-spit near Kakinada Internal waves generation and propagation using SAR images Real time prediction models for tropical cyclones of Bay of Bengal Statistical models prediction of seasonal rainfall of Indian monsoon Real time high resolution short range weather prediction for Andhra region Since its inception it has produced eminent alumni who contribute for the development of Meteorology and Oceanography at the National and International levels. For its meritorious services over the years the department was identified by DST-FIST sponsored department for strengthening the teaching and research in the fields of Meteorology and Oceanography. Added advantage comes as research institutions like ISRO,NIO,IITM,IMD,SAC,INCOIS,DRDO are in collaboration with the department.
