Research Highlight

Long-term changes in the summer monsoon rainfall, over central India, during 1900-2018. 

The large-scale secular changes in monsoon rainfall are attributed to the increase in global emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants. At the same time, local changes through urbanization, land use changes and deforestation have brought in a non-uniform response in these rainfall trends.
