IMD’s Technology to Control Rain and Prevent Floods

IMD’s Technology to Control Rain and Prevent Floods

Every year, one or the other state in India is affected by flood due to various reasons and the majority of the cases are due to over flooding of rivers. To solve out the problem, India’s Meteorological Department (IMD) has come up with a new technology.

The new technology (Impact Based Forecasting approach) is exclusively developed to prevent overflowing of rivers and reservoirs by rain. It will also help the state governments to monitor the impact of rainfall minutely.

According to KJ Ramesh, IMD Chief, the new technology will be able to detect pre-event scenarios. Every state government can take real-time decisions on whether to release the water of the reservoirs or not. The technology is fully developed and can be now implemented into service. 

The new technology comes out after the deadliest floods in Kerala a few months ago. For almost 15 days, Kerala was ravaged by heavy rainfall where 550 people were killed and the state incurred damages worth Rs.40,000crore.

Between August 9 and 15, IMD reported that Kerala had received an estimated 98.5 mm rain but originally the state received 352.2 mm of rain. There were lapses in measuring the rainfall.

According to IMD director general, due to climate change, Kerala experienced excessive rainfall and ultimately floods occurred.

In October, IMD has developed a technology for oceans, it will help the scientists to detect warm water segments that are responsible for the rapid intensification of the systems.
