About the Workshop :
Rainfall is an important element of Indian economy. Although the
monsoons affect most part of India, the amount of rainfall varies
from heavy to scanty on different parts. There is great regional
and temporal variation in the distribution of rainfall. Over 80%
of the annual rainfall is received in the four rainy months of
June to September. The average annual rainfall is about 125 cm,
but it has great spatial variations.
This year the monsoon arrived in India very late and continued for
a longer time. The khariff season will be less but we can expect
good rabbi crop. Due to scanty some parts of the country, many
cities, towns and villages are facing acute shortage of drinking
water. The drinking water is being supplied by tankers. Several
irrigation projects are incomplete and storage is at lowest level.
The live-stock, the main economy of rural India, is at survival
Therefore the IEI (I), MSC is organizing one day workshop on
Rainfall – pattern, analysis, intensity, frequency, distribution,
storm water design and rainwater harvesting etc on 19th January,
2013. The workshop will focus on how to combat bravely and wisely
to errant rainfall situations and make human beings comfortable.
The aim can be achieved both at macro level and micro level. The
workshop will address important aspects of rainfall patterns,
collect data, analysis of data, design of storm water drainage
system, pumping from low lying areas (dewatering), and rainwater
