PRITHvi VIgyan (PRITHVI)

Context

∙ The Union Cabinet has approved Rs 4,797 crore research scheme The PRITHvi VIgyan (PRITHVI) to enhance the understanding of the Earth.

About

∙ It encompasses five ongoing sub-schemes of the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), namely:

∙ Atmosphere & Climate Research-Modelling Observing Systems & Services (ACROSS);

∙ Ocean Services, Modelling Application, Resources and Technology (O- SMART);

∙ Polar Science and Cryosphere Research (PACER);

∙ Seismology and Geosciences (SAGE); and,

∙ Research, Education, Training and Outreach (REACHOUT).

Objectives of the Scheme

∙ Augmentation and sustenance of long-term observations of the atmosphere, ocean, geosphere, cryosphere and solid earth to record the vital signs of the Earth System and change;

∙ Development of modeling systems for understanding and predicting weather, ocean and climate hazards and understanding the science of climate change;

∙ Exploration of polar and high seas regions of the Earth towards discovery of new phenomena and resources;

∙ Development of technology for exploration and sustainable harnessing of oceanic resources for societal applications;

∙ Translation of knowledge and insights from Earth systems science into services for societal, environmental and economic benefit.

Significance of the Scheme

∙ PRITHVI promises to unify various disciplines under Earth sciences, fostering integrated, multidisciplinary research.∙ This collaborative effort aims to address significant challenges in weather, climate, oceanography, cryospheric studies, seismology, and sustainable resource utilization.
