Abstract In this thesis, a variety of available satellite data products have been made use ofto bring out a synergistic analysis on the upwelling phenomenon in SEAS. Basicconcepts of remote sensing, upwelling and linked oceanography topics have beendealt in this work .Auxiliary data products utilized in this study are describedin chapter 2. The climatological monthly variability of the upwelling signaturesare detailed under chapter 3. Chapter 4 presents the forcing factors that triggerthe upwelling process in SEAS. Chapter 5 describes the oceanic response to theforcing factors with respect to the SST cooling and CHLA blooms. Chapter 6presents the heat budget of the region and the variability of heat budget termswith respect to upwelling. Chapter 7 describes the inter-annual variability ofupwelling intensity in SEAS and the influence of climatic events on upwelling.
