Prof. U C Mohanty has received Ministry of Earth Science (MoES) Life Time Excellence Award

Prof. U.C. MohantyProf. U. C. Mohanty has made outstanding contribution in the field of tropical meteorology, in particular, Asian summer monsoon dynamics, tropical cyclone research, numerical weather prediction in tropics, mesoscale modeling of extreme weather events over Indian monsoonal regime, extended range prediction of Indian summer monsoon and regional climate modeling.

The uniqueness of his contribution in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and Technology is attributed to close linkage of field experiments to obtain special atmospheric data sets, comprehensive processing and analysis of special data sets for better understanding of atmospheric processes in the tropics, mathematical modeling of non-linear weather systems and numerical solutions.; The other important aspects of his contribution are improvement of numerical models, statistical - dynamical downscaling of model products, evaluation and validation of models and practical applications in various sectors like defense services, aviation, agriculture and weather prediction services.

In recognition of his life time outstanding contributions, Ministry of Earth Sciences honors Prof. U.C. Mohanty with "National Award in Atmospheric Sciences and Technology". The award was conferred to him on 27 July 2013 - Earth Day Celebrations - by the Ministry of Earth Sciences, Govt. of India.
