Developing Agency:

Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) - Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) Centre for Mathematical Modelling and Computer Simulation (CMMACS)

Investment required (in INR):

About Rs. 20 crore (Rs. 1 crore per station), for 20 station over India for setting up of CO2 monitoring station.

Brief Description

Description :

Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) has ability to estimate CO2 fluxes over the globe through high precision measurement of CO2 concentrations.The sources and sinks of CO2 in India have not been rigorously quantified and large uncertainties still exist in estimates of land and ocean uptake. Without this information, India is at a serious disadvantage when it comes to CO2 negotiations in the global fora. Hence, the technology is extremely useful for policymakers to decide on the emission strategy for the country.
