TERI acquires super computers

It will address the gaps and develop a better understanding of climate variability and climate change at different spatial and temporal scales.

The TERI Director General, Dr R K Pachauri, who is also the Chair of the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said : “Climate modelling at TERI envisions addressing key environmental challenges from global to local levels, by providing plausible scientific knowledge on climate change issues with the help of next generation climate models. WIPRO’s supercomputer will help in fine-tuning the complexities attached in predicting the climate patterns so that they can be used for climate change projections and regional impact assessment studies.”

The supercomputer would enhance TERI’s Climate Modelling capabilities to develop a better understanding of climate variability and climate change to effectively link climate science to policy research, enable prediction, planning, adaptation and mitigation measures in adverse scenarios like earthquakes, coastal storms, extreme sea level rise.

Through the supercomputer TERI will be able to achieve global and regional simulations of past, present and future climate using the climate system models and regional dynamical downscaling tools, understand the climate variability and monsoon dynamics depicted in the models and qualitative estimation of bias or uncertainty produced by the models, tailor climate model outputs in order to link them with the region or location specific Impact Assessment Models like Dynamic Interactive Vulnerability Assessment model, Soil Water Assessment Model, Decision Support System for Agro technology transfer model and Advance Circulation model for storm surge inundations.

This supercomputing facility may place TERI as one of the leading centers  for  excellence on climate modelling across Indian subcontinent and around the globe but also a hub for regional and global data, training, and capacity building.

Supercomputing facility can enable to project changes in the climate thereby enable prediction, planning, adaptation and mitigation measures in adverse scenarios or in the case of earthquakes, coastal storms, extreme sea level.

Some of TERI’s key collaborations on climate research include those with Bjerknes Center for Climate Research, Norway, United Kingdom Meteorological Office, UK and Asian Disaster Preparednes Center, Thailand. TERI is also active at the moment in contributing to the state action plans on climate change in a number of states in India.
