Title: Comprehension of Water Resources and its Concomitant Challenges in a Warming Environment
Abstarct: Water resources are the significant part of the ecological cycle which empowers the survival of all living beings on the earth system. It plays a major role in the development of the agricultural and economic efficiency, however observed to be vastly reliant on the monsoon, climate change and variability. It is identified that aforementioned variabilities modulate the water resources through ocean and atmospheric dynamical processes. Surprisingly, the impacts of the ocean cum atmospheric dynamics and its association with water resources in the warming environment is noted to leads increasingly serious environmental problems. Precisely, in the warming environment there are several ongoing emblematic which indicate that we've begun facing environmental problems: increased water vapor in the atmosphere, glaciers and polar ice caps appear to be melting, floods and droughts are becoming more severe, and sea levels have risen since 1990. Therefore, to have a substantial valued economic development, it is highly recommended to explore the water resources concerns and its associated environmental impacts, and particularly its linkage to monsoon variability and climate change. This keynote speech will encompass a detailed comprehension of the water resources and its possible association to monsoon in the warming environment to bolster the role of ocean cum atmosphere dynamics in the delineation new water resources opportunities and challenges.
