 About the MOS Network  
 

The Manned Observation Stations (MOS) Unit was established in CWRDM in 1992 with the available personnel and infrastructure facilities to store and retrieve data and make it available for the research requirements of the Centre and for other user agencies.  As a part of the research projects taken up by  CWRDM, several climatologic and hydrologic observation stations were installed, and also data on different parameters collected from the field. A  need for the management of these data was recognised.  Data are also collected from the observation stations of other departments/agencies.
