Centre of Excellence for Hydrological Modelling

Developing a “Centre of Excellence for Hydrologic Modelling” and giving leadership to the Country in hydrologic modelling services is one of the four major tasks assigned to NIH under the NHP. We plan this centre to become knowledge repositories in hydrological processes understanding, advanced tools and techniques, advancement taking place from time-to time globally on hydrological research, tools and techniques to respond to the India’s hydrologic modelling services. The hydrologic modelling services strive to make India self reliance in water management tools and techniques to help decision making on movement, availability, fate and quantity and quality management of both surface and sub-surface water. Three studies on application of different models have been initiated in CEHM. A status report on the Hydrologic modelling has been prepared
