Final Call for research proposals under Monsoon Mission-II

Earth System Sciences Organization (ESSO) of Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), Government of India, launched the “National Monsoon Mission” (NMM), a mission mode project with a vision to develop a state of the art dynamical prediction system for monsoon rainfall on all different time scales in 2012. Monsoon Mission has completed its first phase by setting up high resolution coupled dynamical prediction system with reasonable prediction skill for seasonal and extended range time scales and very high resolution atmospheric model for weather prediction. MoES has approved continuation of the Monsoon Mission program, as “Monsoon Mission-II (MM-II)” for next 3 years (2017- 2020) with emphasis on predicting extremes and development of application based on the forecasts generated.

Project proposals are invited from national and international organizations/Universities/Institutes. Format for national and International proposals and other information are available at IITM website at the link http://www.tropmet.res.in/monsoon/index_2.php and also at NCMRWF and MoES websites.

Research proposals are invited on the broad areas of  Model Development, Climate applications for Agriculture management, Climate applications for Water resources management, Climate Applications for Power/Energy sector

 

This is the final call for submission of the proposals to Monsoon Mission -II.  Interested scientists may submit concept notes on or before 30 April 2018.
