IMD’S Major Project of Modernization on Integrated Forecasting and Communication System Launched Today

Forecasting is very crucial when one come across events like Leh and Uttarakhand. Some of them might be due to global phenomena of climate change, human interventions and others, but understanding this complex phenomena is very crucial for entire world community and more so for India. Inaugurating Integrated Forecasting and Communication System at India Meteorology Department (IMD) here today, Shri Prithviraj Chavan, Minister of State for the Ministry of Earth Sciences (I/C) said, “Dynamic weather prediction models using super computers and very highly sophisticated software will start giving us more and more accurate data. India is subject to several kinds of meteorological hazards which may endanger lives of its citizens, whether they come in the form of drought, heat waves, monsoon, floods, thunderstorms, or tropical cyclone. Agriculture, like so many sectors of Indian economy is highly dependent on weather and climate.”
