Why in News?

Recently, Director of State Meteorological Center Bikram Singh said that the work of installing Doppler radar in Surkanda Mandir area of Tehri district has been completed.

Key Points

  • At present, the work of radar testing is going on, which is expected to start smoothly within a month.
  • It is worth mentioning that after the Kedarnath disaster of June 2013, the need of radar was being felt in the mountainous area for accurate weather forecast, but due to non-selection of land for establishing radar in the area, the radar was not installed. It could have happened.
  • Doppler radar will give information about the possibility of heavy rain, hailstorm and strong winds about two hours in advance.
  • The radar will be capable of recording data on weather activities within a radius of 100 km.
  • Accurate weather information from the radar will also be given to the people traveling on the Chardham circuit.
