About this book

This book deals primarily with understanding, monitoring and prediction of Tropical Cyclones (TCs) over the North Indian Ocean (NIO). There is special emphasis on TC genesis, intensification, movement and associated adverse weather like heavy rainfall and gale winds. It highlights the current state of research on TCs over the NIO and recent improvements in early warning systems due to advances in observational, analytical and numerical weather prediction techniques. The chapters in the book are authored by leading experts from research and operational environments.The chapters presented in the book intend to stimulate thinking and hence further research in the field of TCs, especially over the NIO region. They provide high quality reference material for all experts working in the field of TC related disaster management.  
This book is relevant to TC forecasters and researchers, managers, policy makers, graduate and undergraduate students.

Dr. M. Mohapatra is the Head of Weather Forecasting Services of India Meteorological Department and WMO recognised Regional Specialised Meteorological Centre for Tropical Cyclones at IMD, New Delhi. His main research interests include high impact weather events, especially tropical cyclones. He has 22 years of experience in meteorological services and research and is the author of 60 research papers published in peer reviewed journals. He has received a number of recognitions including 25th Biennial Mausam Award and Young Scientist Award of Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), Government of India for his research contributions in the field of atmospheric sciences.
B.K. Bandyopadhyay got his post-graduate degree in solid state physics in 1976 from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. He joined as a Research Scholar in Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune and during next three years, he was associated with research on microphysical characteristics of clouds. He joined India Meteorological Department in 1981 and was engaged in operational weather forecasting for past 30 years which mainly included cyclone and heavy rainfall warning services and allied meteorological research. He has made significant research contributions mainly on tropical cyclones. He has about 40 research publications in the national and international journals.
Dr. L.S. Rathore is the Director General of Meteorology, India Meteorological Department and Permanent Representative of India with World Meteorological Organization. He is Co-Vice Chairman of Intergovernmental Board of Climate Services (IBCS) and former Vice President of Commission for Agriculture Meteorology, WMO and presently on its management board. He is former President of Indian Meteorological Society and President of Association of Agro-meteorologists. He made significant contribution in setting up Integrated Agro-meteorological Service in India. He has 35 years of experience in meteorological services and research and has published about 100 research papers and seven books. He is recipient of Dr Lakhi Ram Memorial Award, 2011 constituted by Society for Recent Development in Agriculture. He has been conferred Fellowship by Indian Meteorological Society.
