About The Event

TROPMET is a series of national conferences organized annually by the Indian Meteorological Society (IMS). This year, TROPMET will be hosted by IMS Jaipur Chapter at Birla Institute of Scientific Research, Jaipur, Rajasthan during 22-24 November 2023. TROPMET series have received generous support from several Government as well as private agencies in the past, and efforts are underway to seek their sponsorship this year too. The TROPMET-2023 focuses on Changing Dynamics of Arid Region and impact on Weather and Climate over Indian Subcontinent. The arid regions over India are extremely diverse in terms of their climate, land forms, soils, fauna, flora, water balances and human activities. In general, they are characterized by excessive heat and inadequate/variable precipitation, which frequently result in high impact weather events such as floods, droughts, heat waves, dust storms, heavy precipitation etc. Therefore, understanding of the changing dynamics of the arid region in terms of weather and climate impacts is of great interest not only for the scientific community but also for policy makers and planners to manage the potential impacts on various sectors for the benefit of the society. Keep this in view, TROPMET-2023 deliberates on the following sub- themes.


Sub Themes

  • Meteorological Processes over Arid Region
  • High Impact Weather Events over Arid Regions
  • Agriculture Patterns in Arid Zones
  • Desert Locust Monitoring and Forecast through Remote Sensing
  • Changing Monsoon Dynamics
  • Climate Change projections over Arid Region
  • Role of Ocean-Atmosphere Interaction
  • Meteorological Observation and Analysis
  • Environmental Pollution and Health Impacts
  • Numerical Weather Prediction Modeling and Processes
  • Renewable Energy over Arid Region
  • Application of Drones in Weather and Climate Studies
  • AI/ML in weather and Climate Prediction


The original research papers from India and abroad, covering TROPMET-2023 theme/sub-themes are invited for presentation. Authors may submit abstracts not exceeding 300 words. Download Template
