Sea level measurements at Mumbai High
NIO has successfully carried out sea level measurements at ONGC's offshore oil production platform, ICP, at Mumbai High. This is the first time such measurements were carried out at an offshore location. The work was carried out by a team consisting of Dr. Antony Joseph, Vijay Kumar, Sundar, and Prakash Mehra after an initial reconnaissance survey carried out by Dr. Unnikrishnan and Dr. Antony Joseph. A suite of instrumentation consisting of self-recording tide gauges and current meter, mounted on a structure of about 350 kg weight and 11.0 m long, was deployed into the ocean and rigidly fixed to the platform. As part of the measurements, an Autonomous Weather Station (AWS) was also installed on top of the platform. Data collected over a period of 40 days (February-April, 2007) were analysed and found to be good. These measurements were used for providing tidal predictions for operational applications for Mumbai High.
