India To Launch INSAT 3D To Boost Weather Forecasting Accuracy



According to the ministry of Earth Sciences, India will launch the INSAT 3D satellite this year to boost the weather forecasting accuracy. This was communicated by Shailesh Naik, Secretary in the Ministry of Earth Sciences on Tuesday.

Delivering a lecture on ‘Weather, Climate and Environment’ at the current 97th Indian Science Congress, he said, "The country will achieve more accuracy level within a few years in short-term and long-term weather forecasts."

According to the secretary, India has at present about 77% accuracy level in short-term weather forecast and it is to be improved to a better level through the launch of INSAT 3D this year and Oceansat II in 2012.

INSAT-3D has no additional communication payload as in the other satellites and it is basically meant for meteorological purposes.

The satellite has a set of equipment consisting of a 19-channel sounder, a 6-channel imager and two other related payloads.

According to the Ministry, under weather forecast plan, about 650 districts would be covered by the end of 2010. There is also a plan for a training school for training in climate studies.
