In order to accurately predict the rainfall and its growing intensity or the direction of the wind flow – the IMD or the Indian Meteorological department is planning to install eight doppler radar systems in Northeast India.
Doppler Radar System to be installed
As the northeastern states has high degree of rainfall compared to other states, the states requires a proper system to measure the intensity of the rainfall.
A total of eight systems will be installed in three districts of Assam – Guwahati, Dhubri and Tezpur, Imphal, Kohima, Itanagar and Lengpui in Manipur.
The proposed installation is in process and the government aims to get it installed within this financial year.
As per reports, the main purpose of the doppler radar system is to identify the speed, distance, presence and direction of wind. The radar sends off signals that touches the surface of the earth and bounces back to the device.
The system will thus eliminate the cause of inefficient weather forecast and thus make more accurate results.
