Are you currently using satellite soil moisture data? Or… do you think satellite soil moisture data may be useful to you in the future?

We are collecting information as part of an India UK Water Centre Pump Priming project  via an online survey. The aim is to identify current and potential future applications of satellite-based soil moisture products, barriers to uptake, user requirements and potential opportunities.

A three day workshop of Indian and UK scientists is being held at the Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun hosted by the India-UK Water Centre (IUKWC). Experts from both countries will present the latest research findings and discuss ways of improving future of water security within the Indian Himalayas through integrating precipitation forecasts and climate predictions with basin-scale hydrological modelling.

The India-UK Water Centre is calling for volunteers from its Open Network of Water Scientists to help support the design and implementation of its first Grassroots Field Exposure Sessions (GFES).

A three day India-UK Water Centre (IUKWC) event held in Kochi between 23rd and 25th January 2018 brought together leading water scientists from the UK and India with state level water policy and management bodies from six southern States. The event was the first in the Centre's planned series of User Engagement Initiatives which are designed to bring together scientists with policy makers, regulators and commercial companies to support the communication of joint India-UK water security science to users.

The IUKWC's Researcher Exchange Schemes provide opportunities for Indian experts to visit the UK or UK experts to visit India in order to spend time exploring research ideas, building capacity or training in research methods, or exchanging latest findings. The first round of Exchanges were undertaken in the Spring of 2017 and the first Activity Report is now available.
