Thunderstorm Current Affairs, GK & News
The scientists of CRS have created a climate hazards and vulnerability atlas of India. CRS is Climate Research and Services and it operates under India Meteorological Department (IMD). About the map The scientists created the map based on 14 extreme weather events. They also considered the risks and threats imposed by these 14 weather events ..

The Scientists from the International Space Station (ISS) have observed a bright-blue lightning bolt that is shooting upward from the thunderclouds. Such blue jets are hard to observe from the ground because the electrical discharges emerge from the tops of thunderclouds. But from space, one can easily observe the phenomenon. Highlights The instrument at the ..
A big temperature rise is expected to arise on Monday. The temperature is likely to be the highest in the Mid ”Atlantic parts and the parts of the Northeast. Temperature might get reduced around Boston, but still it will remain warmer. The spring air is likely to keep the weather warm and ideal for outdoor ..
Researchers at GRAPES-3 muon telescope facility in Ooty measures electrical potential, size and height of a thundercloud
For the first time in the world, researchers at the GRAPES-3 muon telescope facility in Ooty have measured the electrical potential, size and height of a thundercloud that passed overhead on December 1, 2014. The study of thunderclouds is helpful in navigation of aircraft and preventing short circuits in aeroplanes. At 1.3 gigavolts (GV), this ..
