Background

DST Centre of Excellence in climate modeling is a major initiative taken at IIT Delhi and funded by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India to develop an India-Centric Climate Model (ICCM) to address certain pressing issues of climate change in India, and to educate manpower in numerical modeling of the Earth system and climate. The country needs reliable climate projection for future planning and policy making to make informed decisions against the backdrop of global warming and climate change. This is deliverable only when we have a reliable model - a model successful in capturing the present-day climate of India. Reliable future projections of climate demand a satisfactory numerical global model. However, all the available models possess unacceptably large biases, especially with rainfall over India, even though they are doing reasonably good jobs over other regions and at global scale. The researchers at IIT Delhi propose to perform the required upgrades to an existing climate model and build a better model for the Indian region through improved physical and computational implementations. They aim to develop the ICCM through process improvements and region-specific customization that can simulate the regional climate of India and can be used for future climate projections at district level to assess the impacts of climate change on agriculture, health, water resources as well as the energy sectors.

Research

The figures below show that large biases exist in regional climate simulations over India by the available global climate models used in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment Reports. We thus need a climate model that is India centric and can be used for reliable climate projections.

corporate fundraising

The Centre is funded by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India for an initial 5-year term starting from 2017. Corporate funding is welcome for strengthening its activities and broadening its horizon. We are looking for additional funds to conduct topical research, high impact workshops, advanced training programs, outreach activities and similar other activities along this line that will be mutually rewarding for CoE and the Sponsor Corporate House.
