Numerical Weather Prediction Techniques

Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) technique uses mathematical models of the atmosphere to predict weather based on current conditions. During the last two decades, weather forecasting all over the world has greatly benefited from NWP models. Significant improvement in accuracy and reliability of NWP products has been driven by sophisticated numerical techniques (advanced data assimilation algorithms, […]

Forecasting Tropical Cyclones

Losses caused by a tropical cyclone (TC) depends on hazard and vulnerability analysis, preparedness and planning, early warning, prevention and mitigation. Early warning is a major component of disaster management in the south Asian region. This involves monitoring and prediction of a cyclone, effective warning and dissemination of relevant information to people, coordination with emergency […]

Extreme Rain Events

Extreme rain events, severe floods and hydrometeorological disasters are serious issues that is believed, will intensify the hydrological cycle under a changing global climate regime. Experiences suggest that the extreme rain events are large scale embedded (for the country as a whole), long period intense rainfall activities during the summer monsoon period. Every year some […]
