Climate Modelling Lab

Ecologically Friendly Alternatives

Climate modeling lab offers a platform to climate model users and developers to access sophisticated models like PRECIS (Providing REgional Climate for Impact Studies), MAGICC SCENGEN (Model for the Assessment of Green house gas Induced Climate Change SCEnario GEnaration) , SimClim (Climate Simulator) etc.

The Centre has regional climate modelling system - PRECIS licensed by the UK Met Office . This is the first centre in the country to provide future projection of climate scenarios at regional level (25 km resolution and 6 Ensembles in each experiment having a length of 130 years) using PRECIS which could meet the requirements of NAPCC (National Action Plan on Climate Change) and also to provide huge pool of climate data for further potential climate research. Centre for Climate Change and Disaster Management is equipped with high standard IT facilities (High Performance Computing) to run PRECIS and other Climate models. It has separate workstations and servers to run each model.

The GIS Laboratory is located within the centre. It provides Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing for researchers within the centre. In addition, the lab offers equipment, software and facilities for instructing students, faculty, and staff throughout the centre.

The Lab hosts ArcMap, ENVI/IDL, and ERDAS, making these availble for the research scholars within and outside Anna University. Researchers use the lab for compiling and digitizing spatial and attribute data, interpreting geologic and geophysical data, and producing publication-quality maps and figures.

Wet Lab

The centre for climate change and adaptation research houses the wet lab for conducting basic physico-chemical analysis of water and soil samples. The instruments include analytical balance, magnetic stirrer, shaker, hot air oven etc.

Total carbon analysis is done using the newly installed TOC analyser. Soil temperature and pH probes are used for regular monitoring of soil parameters. Greenhouse gas flux chambers for monitoring GHG emission from wetlands and dump yards are employed frequently.

Adaptation Lab

Climate Adaptation lab is an interdisciplinary climate research studio which offers promising oppurtunities for thye development of integrated and sustainable design solutions. It facilitates oppurtunities to develop dialogues among climate researchers, civil society, policy planners and decision makers.

Similar kind of exercises are employed at the CCCDM, that includes consultation with expertise, reviewing the existing policies and identifying the stakeholders of adaptation, framing innovative strategies that suits each sector, conducting brainstorming among researchers and taking efforts to take the ideas for implementation to the governing bodies.
