Climate Change: The future Looks Fiery in Gujarat

Climate change will severely affect Rajkot—and by extension central Saurashtra—by the end of the century, predicts a research paper by Gujarat-based officials of the India Meteorological Department (IMD). The researchers say that in the next nine decades, the maximum summer temperature will increase by 3.3 degree C and the minimum winter temperature will rise by 4.5 degree C. The hotter climate will mean more rain and the region will witness a 11 per cent to 14 per cent rise in average rainfall. The researchers took seven global climate models and incorporated them into the Long Ashton Research Station Weather Generator (LARS-WG) to project the future scenario of the region on the basis of historic daily data of rainfall, maximum and minimum temperatures, from 1969 to 2013.
