Researchers have found one more reason why urgent steps have to be taken to stop deforestation in the Western Ghats. The dense vegetation in the Western Ghats determines the amount of rainfall that Tamil Nadu gets during the summer monsoon.

 

The study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters also found that deforestation of the Ghats led to 0.25 degree C increase in surface temperature across the State. The work was done in collaboration with Prof. Raghu Murtugudde of University of Maryland and Dr K. Rajedran from CSIR-Fourth Paradigm Institute (CSIR-4PI), Bangalore.

Student Programme for Advancement in Research Knowledge (SPARK)

SPARK is intended to provide a unique opportunity to bright and motivated students of reputed Universities to carry out their major project/thesis work and advance their research knowledge in mathematical modelling and simulation of complex systems. The programme is intended to increase the interaction between scientists and faculty members of academic institutes along with their students towards a long term research collaboration.

Vision and Mission

Our Vision: To provide modelling, simulation and data-intensive capability powered by high-performance computing and informatics research.

Our Mission: To develop knowledge products in the earth system and information sciences for societal benefit by exploiting modelling, simulation and data science capabilities. The mission statement thus encompasses the continuation of existing modelling and simulation work in earth sciences and places emphasis on exploiting data science capabilities across domains.

Our Mandate: To develop reliable knowledge products for decision support in Earth, Engineering and Information Sciences. To be the national leader in High-Performance Computing as service that will power modelling and informatics across CSIR.
