In short about our projects

The Earth Science researchers at IIT Gandhinagar are conducting cutting-edge research on various aspects of the Earth system, such as its origin, evolution, dynamics, climate, and hazards. They are using different data sources and methods, such as satellite imagery, numerical modeling, geophysical techniques, and field experiments, to investigate the physical processes and patterns of the Earth’s surface and subsurface. They are also developing and applying predictive geomorphic models and tools for sustainable river management, flood risk assessment, and water security. They are studying the effects of topography, climate, and human activities on the surface-groundwater dynamics, ravine land development, and river hazards. They are also exploring the genetic morphological classification of the Peninsular rivers and the variability of sediment routing in the NW Himalaya. The Earth Science research at IIT Gandhinagar is funded by various national and international agencies, such as the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the Department of Science & Technology (DST), the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), the Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD), the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR), India, the Paired Early Career Research Fellowship in Applied Research, the National Centre for Polar and Ocean Research (NCPOR), the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), the Wheels India Niswarth Foundation (WIN), and the Science & Engineering Research Board (SERB). The total funding for these projects is approximately 7.6 crores. The Earth Science research at IIT Gandhinagar not only contributes to the advancement of scientific knowledge, but also to the societal and environmental well-being, by providing solutions for energy sustainability, natural disaster mitigation, and climate change adaptation.
