Academic Cell > Brief

During past decade India has experienced major changes in weather and climate system. Monsoon prediction is major task which involves not only forecasting of total seasonal rainfall but most important is prediction of active and break cycles. To be more specific we need to know the duration and spatial extent of active and break cycle of weather phenomena. The most deadly weather events like severe thunderstorms, cyclones, flash floods, snow avalanches etc are most difficult to forecast. To understand the science behind such systems there is need to understand tropical meteorology in different space and time scale. For this purpose Training Program for Manpower Development is considered as major task in the 11th Plan of the Institute.
