The promising solar material Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) is successfully deposited on both plain glass and ITO coated glass substrates.
Recent studies show that fast climate response on time scales of less than a month can have important implications for long-term climate change.
The Divecha Centre for Climate Change was established at Indian Institute of Science in January 2009 with a generous financial contribution from Arjun and Diana Divecha and the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment.
The primary goal of this centre will be to understand climate variability and climate change and its impact on the environment. This will done through interdisciplinary work in collaboration with faculty at Centre for Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences(CAOS), Department of Civil Engineering, Centre for Earth sciences(CEaS) and Centre for Ecological Sciences(CES). The centre will identify technologies that will help to mitigate climate change through interaction with Centre for Sustainable Technology(CST), and all the Engineering Departments at Indian Institute of Science .
A paper entitled, "The state and fate of Himalayan glaciers" published in prestigious journal of SCIENCE on April 20, 2012. This is a review article coauthored by Anil Kulkarni...
Himalayan glaciers are being extensively debated in scientific and public forums, as changes in their distribution can significantly affect the availability of water in many rivers originating in the region.
