The worldwide nutrients safety and sustainable agriculture are the major demanding situations prior to the clinical group within the current period of more suitable weather variability, speedily emerging inhabitants and dwindling assets. No a part of the realm is immune from meteorological extremes of 1 kind or one other posing risk to the foodstuff protection. Agrometeorology has to make most productive use of the possibilities to be had in attaining the ambitions of bettering productiveness and upkeep of sustainability. elevated wisdom and technological development have supplied possibilities to improve effective agrometeorological companies that may support focus on hazards. those comprise advancements in climate forecasting, higher realizing of the monsoon variability and crop-weather relationships, advances in operational agrometeorology and agrometeorological info structures, edition recommendations to weather swap and more desirable probability review and administration. This ebook in keeping with a global Workshop held in New Delhi, India can be of curiosity to all enterprises and businesses drawn to agrometeorological applications

In their study it was inferred that RegCM3 can be effectively used to study monsoon processes over the South Asia region. Shekhar and Dash (2005) have examined the effect of Tibetan snowfall in the month of April on the Indian summer monsoon circulation and associated rainfall using RegCM3 with 55 km resolution. Model simulations show that when 10 cm of snow-depth in April is prescribed over Tibet, summer monsoon rainfall in entire India reduces by about 30%. Singh et al. (2006) used RegCM3 over East Asia regions and showed promising performance of this regional model in simulating important characteristics of monsoon circulations.

Dash et al. 0 Dates Fig. 7 33 Conclusions In this study characteristics of summer monsoon circulation, rainfall and temperature simulated by RegCM3 at two different resolutions 55 and 30 km in the contrasting monsoon years 2002 and 2003 are compared in detail. The initial and boundary conditions for model integration are obtained from the analyses of NCEP/ NCAR. Also the physical parameterization schemes of the two simulations are same. Results indicate that in both the years 2002 and 2003, higher resolution RegCM3 at 30 km predicts much closer wind to NCEP/NCAR reanalysis field at 850 hPa than that at 55 km model resolution.
