Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences
In the last two decades, important knowledge has emerged about the present climate of the earth and its dramatic changes in the past. Indeed, new observations from field experiments, satellites and ocean buoys, together with theoretical calculations and powerful computer models, have helped in understanding complexities of the climate. In light of this complexity, there are several fundamental open questions, and quite surely, new discoveries on the horizon. With increasing demand for more accurate weather and climate forecasts, the prospects for young researchers are bright. The challenges of understanding and prediction of climate are multidisciplinary, we welcome science and engineering graduates to join us in this exciting endeavour. Based on the expertise of the CAOS faculty, specific areas of study include aerosols and their impact on the climate, atmosphere-ocean-climate modeling, carbon cycle modeling, cloud physics, geophysical fluid dynamics, monsoon variability and prediction, physical-chemical-biological oceanography, spatio-temporal scaling in geophysical data, and tropical convection.ME / M Tech or BE / B Tech or equivalent degree in any branch of engineering including Atmospheric Sciences or M Sc or equivalent degree in Physics, Mathematics, Atmospheric Sciences, Oceanic Sciences. Candidates should have taken a course/paper in mathematics involving differential equations” at graduateor postgraduate level. Those having BE/ B Tech or MSc degree need to pass a national level examination (GATE, CSIR-UGC, entrance test conducted by IISc, etc) to be called for interview.
