Annual Monsoon Workshop and National Symposium on “Understanding the science of heatwaves under the warming scenario and challenges ahead”

Organized by: Indian Meteorological Society, Pune Chapter (IMSP) (In association with Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology & India Meteorological Department)

The annual flagship activity of the IMSP, Annual Monsoon Workshop will be organised on 18th March 2024 at Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune. The different aspects of southwest and northeast monsoon seasons of 2023 including different climatic features and forecasts in the subseasonal to seasonal scale will be discussed in the workshop. The workshop will be followed by a National Symposium on Understanding the science of heatwaves under the warming scenario and challenges ahead on 19th March 2024, which will have invited lectures by field experts and contributory participations in the form of oral and poster presentations.
