Coastal Ocean Monitoring and Prediction System

Andhra Pradesh on its eastern side has about 960 Kms of Sea-coast of Bay of Bengal spread in 9 districts and is put to use for different activities. All the three major rivers, Godavari, Krishna and Pennar are joining the coast of Bay of Bengal. Discharges like sewage from various towns & cities, Agriculture run-off, Industrial effluents, etc. are the potential threats to the water quality of coastal waters of Bay of Bengal. In view of this, Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board is monitoring coastal waters of Bay of Bengal regularly on monthly basis at the following points under coastal ocean monitoring and prediction system (COMAPS):
