Hi,

I am calculating PMP of Damodar river basin using Storm Maximization Procedure. I have collected daily rainfall data of India in grided (0.5 degree x 0.5 degree) format, and I need daily dew point data in the same format or only for Damodar river basin.

I will compare the present flood scenerio of the basin with the same during the construction of dams.

Please suggest sources from where this data can be obtained

India’s arteries are choking. Her rivers, the lifeline of hundreds of millions, are over-taxed, polluted and encroached. They are being mined, dammed and emptied of water. Save for the four monsoon months, most rivers are streams of drains, depending on how many cities they pass through. This year people gaped in awe at the River Yamuna (I am sure they were over-awed by other rivers elsewhere too) as for the first time since 1978 looked like a river and not a drain.
