|Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology|
IITM functions as a National Centre for basic and applied research in tropical meteorology.
Its mission is to promote, guide and conduct research in the field of meteorology and air pollution in all aspects and to function as a national centre for basic and applied research in monsoon meteorology. Urban air pollution, chemical transport modelling and middle atmospheric dynamics is one of the major scientific programmes of IITM. The objective of this program is to (1) study the processes governing distribution of chemical constituents in the atmosphere and impact assessment for climate change under the global and regional chemical transport modelling (2) to develop emission inventory of atmospheric constituents for mitigation strategies (3) to monitor ambient air pollutant to study the short-term and long-term variability over rural and urban environments.
