The aim of sustainable tourism is to ensure that development brings a positive experience for the local people, tourism companies and the tourists themselves.


Coral reefs are the most productive eco-systems in the world. The growth of corals and its existence in its virgin greatly depends on the unpolluted lagoons. The marine biodiversity of India is represented by rich corals, diverse fish species including the whale sharks, whales, dolphins and dugong and a plethora of economically important arthropods and molluscs (Sea slugs).

 

The world's largest marine turtle breeding ground, migratory waterfowl and Asia's largest brackish water lake Chilika adds further values to the coastal and marine habitat and biodiversity of India.

 

India is surrounded by the Arabian Sea on the west, the Indian Ocean in the South and the Bay of Bengal on her East. The Andaman and Nicobar island chain lies east of the mainland between the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. The Lakshadweep island group is located off India's southwest coast.

Earth Science

Earth's surface has undergone unprecedented warming over the last century, particularly over the last two decades. To answer this question, patterns observed by meteorologists and oceanographers are compared with patterns developed using sophisticated models of Earth's atmosphere, oceans and on its land surfaces. Mathematical models allow scientists to simulate the behavior of complex systems such as climate and explore how these systems respond to natural and human factors.

 

As a result of an enormous scientific effort over the years to better understand the climate system and its relationship to human activities, there now is a growing consensus among mainstream scientists about the reality of global warming. The current levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere are higher than at any time during the last 650,000 years. Science tells us with increasing certainty that we are in for a serious long-term problem that will affect all of us. Related links at: Earth Science
