Scientists from UEA will release underwater robots in the Bay of Bengal to monitor how ocean conditions influence monsoon rainfall. Meanwhile collaborators from a partner project led by the University of Reading with colleagues across the UK and India will use a state-of-the-art aircraft to take atmospheric measurements at the same time. Nobody has ever made observations on this scale during the monsoon season itself so this is a truly ground-breaking project.
It is hoped that the combined results of this large-scale scientific campaign will help forecast the arrival of the Indian monsoon more accurately than ever before. As well as improving rainfall prediction, the research could revolutionise subsistence farming, improve the livelihoods of millions of people, and help mitigate the damage caused by monsoons when they hit land.
