India will have its own climate change models to project the impact of global warming over the decades.

  1. It will form part of the forthcoming 6th IPCC reports that are expected to be available in 2020.
  2. The climate models will be prepared by the Pune-based Centre for Climate Change Research.
  3. These dynamic models rely on super-computers to compute the weather on a given day and simulate how it would evolve over days, months and even years.
  4. These models, developed in the US, have over few years been customised to Indian conditions.
  5. Their ability to predict the Indian monsoon has consistently improved over the years.
