Emission inventory and modelling of air pollution in India

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Air | Environment

TERI has been working on developing emission inventories of various air pollutants at both national and urban scales. The existing database of the inventory for the national scale is for the year 2011 at a res of 36/36 sq. km covering multiple sources and pollutants like PM, NOx, SO2, CO and NMVOCs.

Mapping, identification of molecular markers associated with heat tolerance QTLs in tomato

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project

The study seeks to develop a F2 mapping population segregating for heat tolerance and use it for mapping of tomato QTLs associated with heat tolerance.

Training and demonstration on crab and mussel farming

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project

Projects supported by NABARD on the demonstration of mussel and crab farming actively engage and encourage the local fishing communities to undertake mariculture, as an adaptive measure to overcome the impacts of climate change and increasing anthropogenic activities, as well as providing options for livelihood diversification and stimulating healthy socio economic development in the area.
