The Centre for Advanced Training in Earth System Sciences and Climate (CAT-ESSC) started functioning from IITM during 2011. The main objective of the Centre is to create a large pool of trained and dedicated earth system and climate system scientists with in-depth hands-on expertise on individual physical processes of the land, ocean, atmosphere, biosphere and cryosphere with special emphasis on modeling. The aim is to go beyond the conventional training in individual systems and to address weather and climate as processes arising from interactions between the above component systems. Meritorious Masters in Science and Bachelors/Masters in Engineering degree holders are recruited and provided this induction training extending to eighteen months. On satisfactory completion of the training they are to be placed as ESSO scientist-B/C in any institute of the ESSO. The trainees are also given the option to pursue M.Tech. or/and Ph.D. before or after induction. For the program a new campus with self contained facilities for training and research is being developed in Pune.Hence, it is necessary to develop a campus exclusively for the CAT. It needs to be self-contained to meet all the long term demands of the training, trainees, faculty, visiting faculty and the staff.
