About US

Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), Government of India has launched 'National Monsoon Mission' (NMM) with a vision to develop a state-of-the-art dynamical prediction system for monsoon rainfall on different time scales. MoES has bestowed the responsibility of execution and coordination of this mission to the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune.

Welcome to Monsoon Mission

The Major Objectives of Monsoon Mission are :

  • To setup a state of the art dynamical modeling frame work for improving prediction skill of
    • Seasonal and extended range prediction system
    • Short and medium range prediction system
  • To setup the infrastructure and manpower required to improve the prediction skill at all time scales (long, seasonal, extended, medium and short range) over Indian region

  • To build a working partnership between the Academic / Research & Development Organizations and the Operational Agency to improve the monsoon forecast skill.
