The ocean covers more than 70% of the Earth's surface. India has a 7,516 km coastline, 1197 islands and an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) spanning 2.02 million sq km. As the majority of the Indian population lives in the coastal zone, an understanding of the processes and hazards associated with the coastal and oceanic environment is essential. DMCS offers a unique opportunity to study the underwater marine environment and understand the response of gene and protein expression of marine organisms with reference to marine pollution. Unlike other fields of science which involves full time laboratory work, studying marine sciences throw up real challenges to the young minds to prove their capabilities to work with nature in adventure.
