FYI

Dear students,

The Tata Trusts has made a generous contribution to support the travel of
several IISc PhD students to international conferences between Mar 2019 -
Feb 2020. 

We invite PhD students to apply for this grant by filling the form at the
pagehere: https://www.alumni.iisc.ac.in/page/application-for-tata-trusts-travel
-grant-for-students-2019-20

Prerequisites for application:
Should be pursuing a PhD programme at IISc
Should have completed comprehensive examination
Should have an accepted publication at an international conference/symposium
and furnish evidence of the same

Required documents:
Proof/confirmation of conference publication acceptance
Recommendation letter from PhD Advisor
Copies of grade sheets

Applications will be evaluated periodically (during Apr 2019 - Feb 2020) by
the committee of Divisional Chairs and grants will be disbursed on a rolling
basis, based on the availability of funds. Each selected student can avail
up to Rs. 2 lakhs.

Kindly note that once you receive the grant, any
publications/studies/banners/posters supported by the grant must include the
statement "Supported by the Tata Trusts" wherever applicable. Due
acknowledgement needs to be given to the Tata Trusts on any
research/publishable material.

As the funds are provided through a private contribution, there is no
restriction on using only Air India for travel. Private airlines may also be
used for the international travel.   

For any queries, please write to development.odaa@iisc.ac.in.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Office of Development and Alumni Affairs

CAOS Seminar

Title: Local onset and demise of the Indian summer monsoon and its relation to intraseasonal oscillations

Speaker: Prof V. Misra, Dept. of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, Florida State University

Date/Time: Wednesday, 20 March 2019, 4:00 PM

Venue: CAOS Seminar Hall


Abstract:
This talk will introduce a relatively new definition for defining the onset and demise of the
Indian summer monsoon (ISM) at a very granular scale that is in fact data adaptive. The
consistency of this local definition with the seasonal changes of the large-scale circulation will
also be discussed. The talk will then show its relationship with the intraseasonal oscillations of
the ISM both from observations and model simulations. Finally, a real time application of
monitoring the onset isochrones with GPM data will be demonstrated.


All Are Welcome.

DEAR ALL,


        CENTER FOR ATMOSPHERIC AND OCEANIC SCIENCES
                                       SEMINAR

TITLE: "Attributing observed changes in surface air temperature and rainfall over India"

SPEAKER: KRISHNA ACHUTARAO, CENTER FOR ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES, IIT DELHI

TIME AND DATE: 3:30 PM, MONDAY, 4 FEBRUARY 2019

VENUE: CAOS SEMINAR HALL

ABSTRACT

Observed trends in temperature and rainfall over India are analyzed from a detection and attribution (D&A) perspective. Increasing temperatures over India since the middle of the 20th Century over various homogeneous zones of India were analyzed in a recent study by Dileep kumar et al., (2018) who concluded that observed increases can be attributed to forcings from greenhouse gases that have been offset by other anthropogenic factors (including anthropogenic aerosols and land use land cover change). However, the linear regression based D&A method cannot disaggregate the role of anthropogenic aerosols alone since the response to different forcings is not always linearly additive.

Did you know Indian and West African monsoons are linked?
A report by an IISc scientist says that El Nino oscillates between both regions and affects the intensity of their rainfall

Dear Colleagues,


You are cordially invited to submit an abstract to our AOGS 2019, 16th Annual Meeting (28th July to 2nd August 2019 in Singapore) session on

"impacts and Consequences of Changing Climate and Landuse on Hydrology"  [HS16]

 Session Details (HS16): http://www.asiaoceania.org/aogs2019/public.asp?page=sessionList.htm

The goal of this session is to contribute to the discussions on the consequences of climate change and its impact on  hydrological  extremes. In this session, studies addressing but not limited to the following questions are welcome:

-What advances have we made in study related to Impact of changing climate and land use on hydrology?

-what are the bottlenecks that hinder decision makeing taking decisions based on Impact of changing climate and land use on hydrology studies?.

-Case studies of local to regional scale about Impact of changing climate and land use on Hydrology

- what are the current and future challenges in handling of climate change and land use change data and their uncertainty for the forcing of hydrological models?

-what advances have we made in dealing with uncertainty associated in study of Impact of changing climate and land use on hydrology and how useful are they to decision makers?

Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone who might be interested in this session.

Last date of Abstract Submission is 12th February 2019.
