Automatic Weather Stations in North-Eastern States

India Meteorological Department (IMD) has installed modern Automatic Weather Stations (AWS) in North Eastern States of India.

In order to enhance the Weather & Climate services of the NE region, an activity namely, ‘Integrated Meteorological Services for the North-East (NE) region’ has been initiated by the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) under the Central Sector scheme Atmosphere & Climate Research-Modeling Observing Systems & Services (ACROSS). Under the activity, entire observational network in the NE region will be augmented to improve the weather & forecasting skills over the region by commissioning of state of art systems like 8 X-Band Doppler Weather Radars, GPS sonde systems, Snow Gauges, and augmentation of Automatic Weather Stations, Automatic Rain Gauges etc. This will include setting of observational network required for meeting aviation & other requirements through commissioning of Automated Weather Observing System/Heliport Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS/HAWOS), setting up/upgradation of Meteorological Centres (MCs) and other facilities over the region.

Augmentation of the observational network will help fill the data gap areas in the region, leading to better accuracy of forecasts and consequent precision in Climate monitoring, analysis and climate prediction.
