Bhat, GS and Narasimha, R (2007) Indian summer monsoon experiments. In: Current Science, 93 (2). pp. 153-164.
Eight major field experiments have been carried out so far addressing the Indian summer monsoon. While these experiments were international and the impetus was external till 1980, India’s own monsoon programmes evolved since then. In this article, objectives and outcomes from some of these experiments are described. It is shown that monsoon experiments have contributed in several ways. Each experiment enhanced the infrastructure facilities in the country, brought together scientists from different organizations to a common platform and also injected new people in this field. A large amount of data have been generated and their analysis has led to better understanding of the summer monsoon and discovery of new phenomena.
