Earth & Climate Science
The Department of Earth & Climate Science is one of the newborn departments engaged in high-quality teaching and research. The main strength of the department is an amalgamation of two major divisions of Earth and allied sciences: Geological and Climate science under one umbrella. The Earth & Climate Science Department encompass field, laboratory, and computational studies aimed at better understanding both geological and climatic processes.
Our group works on various aspects related to alkaline rock petrogenesis with a special emphasis on REE-Nb-U-mineralization and mobility during fluid-rock interactions.
Our group is interested in clouds and precipitation studies using profilers, disdrometer, and space-borne instruments. Specific areas of research are: Characterization of precipitating systems from space-borne instruments (Active and Passive remote sensing); Validating space borne radars and improving their measurements accuracies; and Cloud and precipitation microphysics
