ON-GOING PROJECT – INHOUSE - INTEGRATED SEASONAL CONDITION MONITORING SYSTEM (ISMS)
Sponsored by: APSAC, Govt. of Andhra Pradesh
Objectives: Droughts are the resultant of acute water shortage due to lack of rains over extended periods of time. Andhra Pradesh is one of the most drought affected states in India. Thus concurrent monitoring of seasonal conditions using remote sensing, extensive weather network data and continuous ground truth provide an early warning (monitoring) of drought by utilising suite of indicators. This will help in increasing drought preparedness and implement appropriate Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) measures that will enhance better health for the entire state.
Output: Fortnightly mandal level reports highlighting the suiatblity to agricultural operations
