 To impart knowledge in Concepts in Meteorology, Radio and Satellite Meteorology and its Applications

UNIT I GENERAL CONCEPTS IN METEOROLOGY 9 Weather and Climate- composition of atmosphere- weather elements and characteristics - Global temperature, pressure and wind belts - scales of atmospheric processes, Land/Ocean Coupling, Vegetation types and climate, climatic classification by Koppen and Thornthwaithe, energy in the atmosphere - Indian monsoons - weather systems and seasons, Indian Climatology - Radiation transfer- radiation spectrum – Absorption and emission of radiation by molecules- Radiation laws- scattering principles – atmospheric particles and radiations - Mechanism of cloud formation- Types of Clouds- Precipitation processes-weather stations, data, maps and symbols. 
UNIT II RADIO METEOROLOGY 9 Principles and classifications of Radar- Meteorological Applications of radar – atmosounding Radio Sonde - pilot balloons - Wind estimation through Radar - Rawin Sonde - Doppler techniques for precipitation estimation – Precipitation Radar (PR) - Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM), Ozone soundings – principle and satellite measurements of ozone – Aerosol soundings Tracking of weather Thunderstorms, Tropical cyclones, Tornadoes through Radar – Hydro meteorological Applications of Radar - Applications to aviation meteorology – TIROS Operational and Vertical sounder – Retrieval methods and algorithms.

UNIT III SATELLITE METEOROLOGY 9 Orbital dynamics of satellite – Critical velocities – Polar and Geostationary weather satellites - Active and passive sensors (Radar/Lidar/Radiometery,scatterometer and altimeter) - Absorption bands of atmospheric gases - Design and characteristic of different types of sounders and imagers used in Meteorological satellites – Viewing geometry - INSAT/Icachana Meteorology - Data Processing System (IMDPS), IRS series – APT – AVHRR - Need for Remote Sensing techniques in weather forecasting and Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) - imaging and non imaging techniques in Meteorology. 
UNIT IV METEOROLOGICAL APPLICATIONS 9 Precipitation – soil moisture - estimation and their Applications – Normalised Difference Vegetation Index – Ocean Colour monitoring – Coastal zone mapping - Satellite communication systems in operational meteorological Applications (Cyclone Warning Dissemination system / Automatic Weather stations – Meteorological data dissemination) - Estimation of snow and ice cover – Water body boundary mapping – aerosols – Dust storms and Volcanic ash clouds and fires – maritime, dwelt, floods and agriculture. 
UNIT V GLOBAL METEOROLOGICAL APPLICATIONS 9 Global and subglobal events – tracking of large weather system – Cloud motion vector – Dvorak‟s techniques of Cylone Intensity estimation - T-phi and other climatic charts - T number and current intensity No. – Applications to storm surge estimation - Satellite soundings – Global Warming – Sealevel changes and Consequences.
