Climate Change

Optimization based design of food-energy-water system

Food
production, energy production and water availability are intricately related. It
has been increasingly acknowledged that these systems should not be looked at
in isolation. The area of food-energy-water (FEW) nexus has, therefore, gained
attention. Considering the nexus is particularly true in the Indian context
with our substantial food demand, limited land availability, already stressed
water resources, and increasing energy demands. Climate change may further
stress these systems.  read more »

Glaciers: Flow instabilities and Melting Dynamics

The Himalayan glaciers are a source of fresh water for millions. So the possibility of them retreating, given the accelerated pace of climate change, is a dire one. Moreover, the melting of the glaciers could translate into a rise in flash floods.  read more »

Discrete Element Method (DEM) simulation for structure of fractal aggregates and their hydrodynamic properties

A simulation project for estimating mobility of nano-particle aggregates. These are looslely packed, non-spherical fluffy structures formed during processes such as synthesis of catalyst particles, transport of nano-particle slurries, transport of pollutants, etc..  read more »

Structure and Dynamics of Interfacial Water

Water is one of the most abundant, ubiquitous and essential material to sustain all biological life on earth. Most of the water exists in large bodies (bulk quantities) in the ocean, river and lakes. However, in many industrial and scientifically relevant conditions, water is associated with other surfaces. Understanding its structure and dynamics at molecular length-scale is useful in catalysis,corrosion, adsorption and atmospheric sciences.

Chemical transport modelling and climate impacts from carbonaceous aerosols over India using WRF-CMAQ

Climate
change is influenced by short lived climate pollutants, including pollution
particles or aerosols, such as black carbon (BC), organic carbon (OC) and
“brown carbon” (BrC), in addition to greenhouse gases. We have developed emissions
inventories for India, which establish traditional biomass technologies, used
in residential and brick production sectors, and diesel vehicles, as major emitters
of carbonaceous aerosols, with important emissions from open burning of waste  read more »
