  • Projects

    Urbanization and Its Impact on Climate Alteration and Environmental Pollution in Faridabad(NIL)
    Faridabad, a major industrial, highly urbanized, populated and critically polluted city in the whole state of Haryana and National Capital Region (NCR) of India, is proposed for study and analysis of urbanization and its impact on climate alteration and environmental pollution with an integrated approach of Remote Sensing, GIS and in-situ measurement. The ongoing research work in Faridabad carried by the investigators of the proposed project proposal has revealed a significant increase in builtby (SERB, DST, GoI)
