Experts claim that by the end of 21st century, India’s mean surface air temperature will rise by 1.39-2.70°C relative to the 1976-2005 temperature

R Krishnan, Executive Director, Centre for Climate Change Studies at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology said, “This rise in temperature will not be uniform across all parts of the country. Greater warming will mean more water vapour in the atmosphere”

Krishnan was speaking on ‘Climate Science and Earth System Modelling – Progress and Prospects’, in a webinar organised by the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) on Monday.

Krishnan said that that his team was working towards developing an Earth System Model (ESM) that has a 27 km resolution

From 1901 to 2018, India’s average temperature had risen by 0.7 degrees Celsius.
