Work ExperienceCarried out statistical analysis of rainfall and temperature for studying climate change in different climates in India. Detailed studies on space time characteristics of rainfall have been carried out for Rajasthan and on the desertification of west Rajasthan in India. Analysis of low flows and hydrological droughts in the semi-arid and arid areas of India were carried out.
