The aim of ACARR is to provides modern sophisticated observational facilities to continuously monitor the Earth' s atmosphere, including advanced radars, LIDARS, SODARS, GPS sonde, flux measurement systems, integrated sounding systems, etc. These facilities allow investigators, mainly Indian scientists, get the detailed information and necessary data for their research programs and can incorporate in numerical weather predictions.
The ACARR investigates major processes important to climate change and atmospheric dynamics in the troposphere and lower stratosphere of the Earth atmosphere. Regional climate modeling studies are also undertaken to understand the regional variability and changes in the tropical climate and identify suitable methods of adaptation techniques.
