The Meteorological Department of India is going to develop a super computer to enhance precision in monsoon forecasting.
The new system will generate 3 dimensional models to help predict how the monsoon will develop.
For this project it is spending around Rs.400 crore.
This system is going to replace the British era statistical model, this is a surprise.
It will work 10 times faster than the Supercomputer named Bhaskara, which is currently used by the Met department.
It’s accuracy will help better prediction of cyclones, heavy rain falls, cloud bursts etc.
The system is expected to be operational by 2017.
