New weather forecasting tool at RMC, Guwahati

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 23 � The much sought-after National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/Meteorological Operation by Polar Orbiting Satellite System Operated by European Organisation (METOP)/Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectro-Radio Meter (MODIS) Satellite Receiving System is now operative at the Guwahati Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC). Director General of Meteorology Dr Ajit Tyagi launched it at a function recently.

This is the latest tool for weather forecasting in respect of satellite meteorology in India. It is now available at the RMC Guwahati, Chennai and Delhi, said a press release signed by Guwahati RMC Deputy Director General, Meteorology (DDGM) H Pathak.

At the RMC Guwahati, the Meteorological Telecommunication trend started initially with 50 BD tele printer and telex circuits followed by AMSS in 1996 and now with HSDT, VPN- connectivity, V-SAT and DMDD etc., the RMC is already equipped with Internet web-based connectivity with its own website.

Recently, the National Knowledge Network (NKN) has also been linked with the existing meteorological network to enable scientists, researchers and students of various backgrounds to work hand in hand.

For observation of meteorological parameters like temperature, humidity, wind, etc., standard analogue instruments are already functioning. With the modernisation of IMD digital telemetric mode of observation, utilisation of the Automatic Weather Stations (AWG), Agro AWS, ARG, GPS and Radiation has also been taken up. The department proposes to set up AWS & ARG network with 2:6 for every district.

The break-up of the total number of AWS�s installed over the region is � Assam-26, Arunachal Pradesh-9, Nagaland-3, Mizoram-8, Manipur- (installation under progress), Tripura- 4 and Meghalya-7. The Storm Weather Radar is going to be replaced by Doppler Weather Radar (DWR) covering the whole of the the NE India. At present, the Meteorological Centre, Agartala is equipped with DWR while installation is in progress at the Meteorology Office, Mohanbari and the Meteorology Office, Cherrapunjee, while installation of this radar at the Guwahati RMC has also been proposed. The RMC Guwahati has, meanwhile, prepared a �Vision Document-2025� for providing better meteorological services for collaborative studies and activities with weather-related stakeholders, institutes and universities, said the press release.
