India Soon Launching a Supercomputer To Predict Monsoon Rainfall


Monsoon rainfall is one of the biggest challenges for India. Every year, the heavy monsoon rainfall in India affects the crops of the country and thus loss to the farming industry. One fifth of India’s economy depends on the agriculture sector. Therefore it is very important for the country to take some preventive measures regarding the prediction and amount of rainfall that occurs.

Although the government is working in close liaison with the top statisticians and meteorologists to predict the monsoon rain, they failed to do so as seen from the fact that they could not predict the drought in India in 2009.

According to the latest reports, India is soon going to establish a supercomputer which will accurately predict the monsoon rainfall. It is going to be ten times faster than the Indian supercomputer developed by IBM. This supercomputer will be able to predict the weather forecasts in almost 29 states of India with high accuracy. The device is specially designed for the forecast of the monsoon rainfall and to predict the number of rains as well. It is going to unveil before the monsoon season next year in June.  If the idea is successful, it is going to change the future of agriculture and farming in India.

Pakistan is an agricultural country relying heavily on its agriculture exports. The agricultural and farming products contribute to a major source of the country’s economy and foreign revenue. Pakistani farmers also face the threat of monsoon rainfall and resulting floods almost every year. It destroys the crops, leading to the decline of agricultural exports. Pakistani government should also take concrete steps regarding the prediction, and preventive measures of the monsoon rainfalls like the Indian government and the Pakistani geniuses should come forward with the ideas of such supercomputers for the country’s prosperous future.
