Research Activities Presently I am working as JRF since July 2013 in the research project entitled “Assessment of the Zooplankton community structure and secondary productivity in the Chennai and Portonovo, Northern coast of Tamil Nadu”, funded by Space Application Centre (SAC), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Govt. of India. I have to assist during sampling along the Chennai and Portonovo coast on monthly basis; need to collect water and plankton samples to study the various physical, chemical and biological properties of water. Prior to that, i have to study and measure in-situ physico-chemical parameters such as atmospheric temperature, water temperature, hydrogen ion concentration, dissolved oxygen and light extinction coefficient. Season wise, i have to do sampling through different cruise programme, such as CRV-Sagar Paschmi, CRV-Sagar Purvi and CRV-Sagar Manjusha to cover inshore and offshore waters. Later, i have to study and process the in-situ data sets and build the model for secondary production. Simultaneously, i apply the model to remote sensing data sets such as Resource Sat-2 OCM2 Chl-a and MODIS-A SST and Chl-a products to estimate and validate the secondary production over a larger spatial area
