Scientists of China & United States develop a statistical model that predict pollution levels using oceans’ memory
Researchers from China and the U.S. have developed a novel computer model that can help accurately predict air pollution levels in the region a season in advance. The statistical model uses certain climatic patterns related to the oceans which have a regulatory effect on the wintertime air pollution over northern India. The new model could ..

Scientists say that this unprecented flood season is mainly due to the warming of the earth. With climate change affecting globally, today there are more than 200 million ..
A new model of monsoon prediction based on multiple linear regression (MLR) has been developed by scientists from the Centre for Oceans, Rivers, Atmosphere and Land Sciences (CORAL), IIT Kharagpur, the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, and the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), Hyderabad. The new method will aid in ..
