WMD Celebrations on 23 march 2017

   with my friends I attended the  exhibition on 23.03.17 at 1330 hrs. But the "open house" was thrown open to General Public and students on 23 March 2017 by 1000 a.m on wards I was told.  Exhibits on 'VARADA VSCS " gave more light on the VSCS.  The recorded charts (Pressure and wind)  were photographed / copied and displayed. On 12.12.2016/ 1533 hrs Nungambakkam recorded the lowest pressure viz 974.7 hPa. At the same time Minambakkam recorded on 12.12.2016/1530 hrs 974.0 hPa. indicating that VSCS had crossed in between Nungambakkam and Minambakkam especially along or off ADAYAR river coast. The wind instruments also depicted "calm wind" by 1533 hrs at Nungambakkam 
    Nearly four buses full of students from far of places like Trichy came and enjoyed the exhibition. In the afternoon there was a lecture by Dr.Tara Prabakaran, a veteran scientist from Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune on cloud related things and  cloud seeding.  The other lecturer was given by Dr.Balaji Narasiman, Professor in IIT Chennai on 2015 floods and evolving of (run off) model with the use of Doppler Weather radar products. The meeting was well attended by scientists and officers and some of the bloggers too.
   It was really an exhilarating experience.
