The National Centre for Earth Science Studies (NCESS) is a premier autonomous R&D institute in the country functioning under the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), Government of India. Over the years, the Centre has been focusing on investigations in the realm of geosciences, marine sciences, atmospheric sciences and environmental sciences. State of the art laboratory facilities were established for different disciplines in the institute to support research on deep crustal as well as surface processes of the Indian lithosphere, the adjoining Arabian Sea, Lakshadweep islands and their interactions with the atmosphere. The activities of NCESS are presently organized under four research groups namely i) Crustal Processes, ii) Coastal Processes, iii) Atmospheric Processes and iv) Hydrological Processes. NCESS currently seeks to engage two consultants to spearhead its key activities on coastal processes including beach placers and budgeting aspects and on aquifer characterization.

In addition, the coastal laboratory facility of the Centre needs to be maintained and training has to be imparted to younger colleagues.
