U. C. Mohanty, M. Mohapatra, O. P. Singh, B. K. Bandyopadhyay, L. S. Rathore
  • Compiles papers presented at the Second International Conference on Indian Ocean Tropical Cyclones and Climate Change (IOTCCC) during 14-17 February, 2012 at New Delhi
  • The papers presented intend to stimulate thinking and further research in the field of TCs and climate change, especially over the Indian Ocean region
  • The papers attempt to offer the recent progress on understanding and prediction of tropical cyclogenesis, intensification and movement as well as landfall processes like heavy rainfall, gale winds and associated storm surges based on latest observational and numerical weather prediction (NWP) modelling platforms
  • Further attempt has been made to include the TC management issues like early warning system, recent high impact TC events, disaster preparedness, assessment of risk and vulnerability including construction, archival and retrieval of best track and historical data sets, policy decisions etc., in view of recent findings on climate change aspects and their impact on TC activity
