Each of these Sections comprised of several sessions. While section Ocean Science (OS) was of major concern to the NIO's scientists, other were also of interest. NIO's scientists, for the first time, had an opportunity to be one of the convenors of three sessions: - OS14 - Differential responses of the marginal seas (Bay of Bengal, Arabian Sea, South China Sea, Java Sea, etc) to the Asian Monsoon and climate change (Dr. S. Prasanna Kumar), - OS05 - Coastal processes and pollutant transport in macro-tidal regimes (Dr. P Vethamony), and - SE72 - Recent multidisciplinary studies of mid-ocean-ridges and ophiolites (K.A.
