Senior Research Fellow:

I am seeking a highly motivated candidate for a project- Hydrologic Modeling and Climate Change Impact Assessment in the Ganga River Basin funded by the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF), Government of India. The main aim of the project will be to setup a hydrologic modeling framework and understanding climate variability and climate change impacts on water resources in the Ganga River basin. The project has the following objectives:

        1. To develop a hydrologic modeling framework using the Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) and Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) models for the Ganga River basin
        2. To develop climate forcing (precipitation, maximum and minimum temperatures) for the Ganga River basin for observed and projected future climate
        3. To simulate mean and extreme flow conditions due to impacts of historic climate variability and the projected climate change at the selected locations within the basin.
