dc.description.abstract This study generated improved reliable bathymetric datasets for the continental shelf of the Indian Ocean. Simulation of tides and generation of co-range and co-tidal charts of the major semi-diurnal and diurnal constituents for the Bay of Bengal were done. A storm surge model was developed to simulate total water levels and derived surges caused by low pressure systems identified during the past 27 years (1974-2000) in the Bay of Bengal. Study also estimated the return levels of extreme sea level events at major coastal stations along the east coast of India.
