10. Research Experience


  1. Research experience in the field of Meteorology since 1970. Main research interests are tropical meteorology - studies of tropical cyclones and Asian summer monsoon; Atmospheric Modelling - tropical cyclone modelling; meso- scale models; general circulation models and climate studies.




  1. Research supervisor for students of Doctoral program. Fifteen students have successfully completed their Doctoral programs and were awarded Ph.D. degrees for their studies in the field of numerical modeling of tropical systems. 30 students have completed their M. Tech dissertations.




  1. Experience of designing and experimentation with numerical models for tropical cyclone simulation; with general circulation models for climate studies. Worked with atmospheric general circulation models of the Meteorological Research Institute, Japan for studies of Asian summer monsoon; and NCAR meso- scale models for meso- scale prediction and regional climate studies. Associated with the development of a two- level spectral atmospheric general circulation model for climate studies.




  1. Developed an axi-symmetric primitive equation model for the simulation studies of tropical cyclones of the Bay of Bengal (north Indian Ocean). Incorporated the cumulus parameterisation schemes of Arakawa- Schubert; Grell; Emanuel and Betts-Miller into the 2-D model and made extensive studies of the sensitivity of convection schemes for the evolution of tropical cyclones.
