Under the JCOMM, WMO/ IOC Joint Commission on Oceanography and Marine Meteorology, a programme is called Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), under which the TCWC PMD is responsible to provide an enhanced Marine Meteorological Service to shipping community for MetArea-IX (Fig -1). In addition PMD also prepares and issues a fleet forecast and sea bulletin for the north Arabian Sea (B 00 , B 30 ), Gulf of Oman (B 25 ) and Persian Gulf (B 20 ) to Pakistan Navy, Karachi Port Trust and other users twice a day.
