Activities of Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre :
Collapse all | Expand all
Functions of KSNDMC:
  • Natural Disasters Management heavily depends on inputs from Science and Technology
  • KSNDMC has been serving as a common platform to the various response players in the field of natural disaster management by providing timely proactive science and technology inputs
  • The Master Control Facility will strengthen the activities of the centre in providing information, reports, advisories to the community, research organizations and the Government.
  • The Centre provides inputs to the farming community, agriculture and horticulture based sector, fisherman, transport sector, power and electricity sector, State and District level Disaster Management Authorities in Karnataka through state of the art natural hazards monitoring sensors, information and communication system.
Forecasting, Early Warning, Advisories and Preparedness in Management of Natural Disasters:

1. Disaster Management is multidisciplinary and has complexity of information sharing and reporting.

2. It is common experience that information is not available on real/near real time to the community and response players. It takes long time to obtain the information and lot more time to integrate and generate information/reports/advisories. A study reports that 40% of the time is spent on searching for the source for information, 30% of time is spent on waiting for the information to arrive and another 30% of the time is spent in understanding and customizing to the users requirement.

3. The Disaster Management Act 2005, Government of India reiterates paradigm shift in Disaster Management from rescue, relief centric approach to preparedness, early warning approach.

4. It is said that one dollar spent on early warning and preparedness helps in reducing the cost on rescue, relief and rehabilitation by 7 dollars. The investment made on early warning and preparedness has high cost-benefit ratio it comprises installation of field monitoring sensors - weather, geological, hydrological; collection of data on real time, transmission of the same to a central computational/analysis centre; data processing; analysis; alert recognition; simulation through appropriate mathematical models, customized report generation ; dissemination of the alerts/reports/advisories to the users

5. This requires Speedy Collaboration and close cooperation between stakeholders.

6. What is needed for implementation:

  • Sensing the pre-cursor
  • Transmission of raw data
  • Processing of data, Alert recognition
  • Dissemination of warning
  • Also weather forecast & agriculture advisories to farming community
Status of progress in installation of monitoring sensors and real time data base management:
  • GPRS enabled and solar powered Telemetric Rain gauges are established and operational at 1638 stations in Karnataka
  • Automatic weather Monitoring Stations installed and operational at 135 stations in Karnataka
  • VSAT enabled and solar powered Permanent Seismic Monitoring stations installed and operational in the State
  • Development and calibration of Hobli level weather forecast mathematical model has been initiated in collaboration with CSIR - CMMACS.
  • Information, reports, advisories being made available through mobile phones, e-mail and web portal to DC's, CEO's. HQA's, AC's, Tahsildars, JD's ( Agri), AD's (Agri), Agri Officers, SP's, Raitha Samparka Kendras, Print and Electronic Media.
  • Help desk has been created to give advisories to farmers.
Master Control Centre (MCC):

It is established centrally located MCC at Bangalore to receive and analyse data, received on near real time, from:

  • Telemetric rain gauges
  • Satellite and GPRS linked weather stations
  • Doppler Weather Radar
  • Storm surge stations
  • Earth quake monitoring stations

The Master control centre of KSNDMC is established in 10 acres and at Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan Road, Near Yelahanka-Attur Layout in Bangalore.

The master control centre is operational 24hrsx7daysx365days.

The Varuna Mitra Helpdesk provide Alerts, Early warnings and advisories related to natural disasters.
