Mumbai - The Department of Environment (DoE) are pleased to launch the first in a new initiative of environmental monitoring stations globally. These stations will allow users to monitor the effects of their interactions within the system of the global climate.
The inaugural EMSP location will be Mumbai, India. The station will be opened on 18th February 2016 at Carter Road promenade - Bandra.
At our newly built Mumbai Snow Monitoring Station 001 (MSMS_001), Mumbaikars will be able to track how human actions affect snowfall in Mumbai. MSMS_001 will continuously measure snow levels based on daily input and relay the data online to DoE resources. The information collected will be an essential addition to the DoE's central climate data repository and will be freely available in real time on-site via doemonitoring.com, in accordance with the DoE Directive D0571 (Data and Openness, 2015).
