The climate related problems of South Asian countries are influenced by similar large scale atmospheric circulations. With the advent of ocean-atmosphere coupled global climate models and with a large volume of observed data available for this region for over two centuries, a range of climate services are now being demanded by Government planners and the hazard mitigation community across the entire south Asian region.
Two recently concluded training workshops cum joint monsoon seasonal prediction exercises in 2010 and 2011, named as SASCOF, evoked encouraging response from neighbouring countries. The RCC shall be built around such interactions.
Assimilation of diverse kinds of observational information covering meteorological variables, atmospheric composition of trace gases and aerosols, sea level, cryospheric and biospheric information etc is essential to the assessment of climate and climate impacts in months to years and to decadal scales of time. A centralized approach to data management, GIS processing and applied analyses are absolutely necessary.
