Bharuch/Surat: Environment and citizens groups in Bharuch have knocked the doors of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) seeking urgent directions for release of adequate water from the Sardar Sarovar

A new comprehensive surface temperature data set for India is used to document changes in Indian temperature over seven decades, in order to examine the patterns and possible effects of global warming. The data set is subdivided into pre-monsoon, monsoon, and post-monsoon categories in order to study the temperature patterns in each of these periods.

According to the state PWD, the monument includes a 126-m tall equestrian statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, placed on a two-tiered pedestal at an height of 84 m, reaching an overall height of

HYDERABAD: Ocean sciences experts from Hyderabad and the United States of America (USA) have now linked global warming to the unchecked bloom of a special type of algae in the Arabian sea.

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Thursday issued notices to the authorities over a petition challenging the construction of the proposed Shivaji memorial statute off the Arabian Sea.

The seas surrounding India, namely Arabian Sea (AS) and Bay of Bengal (BoB) with their associated coastal embayments form one of the highly productive areas and biodiversity hotspots in the tropics contributing profusely to the socio-economic front of the region. Therefore, acquiring knowledge on the climate change scenario of this region and its impacts on marine ecosystems in general and planktons, in particular, is considered crucial for better resilience.

In 2014 and 2015, post-monsoon extremely severe cyclonic storms (ESCS)—defined by the WMO as tropical storms with lifetime maximum winds greater than 46 m s−1—were first observed over the Arabian Sea (ARB), causing widespread damage. However, it is unknown to what extent this abrupt increase in post-monsoon ESCSs can be linked to anthropogenic warming, natural variability, or stochastic behaviour.

In a setback to the state government, an expert panel of the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) has sought more information before granting approval for amendment in the environmental clear

A significant reduction in summer monsoon rainfall has been observed in northern central India during the second half of the twentieth century, threatening water security and causing widespread socio-economic impacts. Here, using various observational data sets, we show that monsoon rainfall has increased in India at 1.34 mm d−1 decade−1 since 2002. This apparent revival of summer monsoon precipitation is closely associated with a favourable land–ocean temperature gradient, driven by a strong warming signature over the Indian subcontinent and slower rates of warming over the Indian Ocean.
