R & D - Centre for study on Rainfall and Radio wave Propagation (SonaCRRP)

Centre for Study on Rainfall & Radio wave Propagation started in 2008 Major field- Climate change; Radio wave propagation- Sub area: Rainfall and associated parameters; Effect of rain on millimeter wave propagation.

Vision

  • To set up a department in atmospheric science and radio wave Propagation
  • To build up a self sufficient R&D centre
    To find the root cause of climate change
    Quantitative estimation of rainfall
    To analyze rainfall dynamics
  • To make an effort to develop an instrument that will measure rainfall and cloud liquid water (CLW), precipitation water (PW), latent heat (LH) at various levels in the atmosphere starting from the Earth’s surface up to 1 km above. If achieved, later it will be extended up to 7 km height.

Mission

  • To include more man power in the centre by obtaining research grant/ students’/ faculty involvement/project guidance at UG & PG level
  • To obtain research, conference and travel grant
  • To approach the Government and the Management for establishing department
  • To have stronger national and international collaboration
  • Collaboration with ISRO to develop instrument
  • Joining ISRO’s space mission by utilizing the satellite outcomes
