TROPMET 2022 IISER Bhopal


TROPMET-2022 Abstract Submission Deadline Extended till 15 August 2022.


TROPMET is a series of national conferences organized each year by IMS. Every fourth year, the TROPMET is organized at the international level with the name INTROMET. This year, TROPMET will be held in the city of Bhopal at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Bhopal. TROPMET-2022 focuses on weather and climate prediction, including applications in the water and agricultural sectors. The climate varies naturally in space and time. Today's concern is the occurrence of climate changes due to human activities. These changes are manifested in an increase in temperature, extreme weather events such as floods, droughts, heat waves, dust storms, heavy precipitation events etc. These weather events need constant monitoring to reduce their potential impacts on society. Since observation stations are not available at every spatial point of interest, modelling efforts are required to help assess the situation. Also, process studies are essential to understand the phenomena to a greater depth. Keeping these facts in mind, TROPMET-2022 will make efforts to bring together climate scientists, agricultural scientists, local government bodies, academicians, policymakers and disasters, and other related experts to discuss and share information for the benefit of the society. A detailed program for this event is being prepared.
