Groundwater exploration and management in dry regions are the main priorities for the CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) over the next few years. The institute will also focus on exploring uranium and developing early warning systems for earthquake hazard assessment and exploration for gas hydrates in shale formations.
The institute plans to use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in geosciences, deep earth imaging, and earth process modeling to raise scientific research to global levels of excellence. During the virtual diamond jubilee celebration’s closing function, he explained that all of these efforts aim to ensure access to sustainable water resources, meet non-conventional energy needs, and strengthen national security.
Tracing the CSIR institute’s contributions to near-surface and deep earth research for 60 years, Dr. Tiwari said NGRI could keep up with the latest technological advances in measuring and monitoring earth’s magnetic fields, simulating horizontal stress, and creating 3-D seismic images of coal deposits.
Earlier this year, geo-mapping resources, seismic monitoring nuclear power plants, and seismic studies following the Chamoli-Uttarakhand landslide disaster have used drones and helicopters in recent projects. To date, the institute has published more than 5,000 research papers and 100 books, with a record-breaking 200 articles appearing in various journals in just the past year alone.
“Phenomenal” contributions to the mapping of geochemical resources, gas hydrates, and earthquake hazards, according to CSIR Director General Shekhar C. Mande, have been made by NGRI in the last six decades of the institute’s existence. A recent visit to the groundwater recharge project in Choutuppal showed me firsthand how science and technology-driven innovation can benefit society. His words: “It’s helped turn back the tide of people moving to cities.”
As well as enhancing fundamental scientific research, the institute has also translated laboratory discoveries into the real world for people’s benefit, according to him. S. Rajendra Kumar, the state’s chief postmaster general, also released a commemorative postal stamp and covered it to mark the occasion.
On top of that, Dr. Mande published “Geo-Odisey,” in which she showcased the accomplishments of NGRI’s accomplishments and the “India Journal of the Geological Society of.” More collaboration between the Ministry of Earth Sciences’ research centers, such as CSIR, was advocated by the scientist. In addition, N. Pooranchandra Rao and Kirti Srivastava, two eminent scientists, gave presentations.
