Cyclone Hudhud: Scientists to spend 3 days on sea to study possible reasons for high windspeeds

HYDERABAD : The unusual wind speeds of Cyclone HuhHud which devastated Visakhapatnam has prompted the National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) to undertake a study in the Bay of Bengal. Three scientists of NIO along with six Ph D scholars will take boats and venture into the sea on Saturday. They will stay in the sea for three days carrying out various studies in a bid to find out why the windspeeds were unusually high up to 210 km/hr.

The findings of the study will become important as scientists will get an understanding of the changing scenario in the sea that would have resulted in the high windspeeds.

"We would like to know what really happened in the sea and what the causes of the abnormality were. We would like to find if the changes to taken place in the sea gradually or was there something that happened suddenly," said NIO Visakhapatnam in-charge scientist V S N Murty.

Murty told The Times of India that the team of scientists and scholars would cover a 40 km long coast and go about 30 km into the sea. "We will study a rectangle," he said. They will venture into the sea from two different place of the cyclone landfall.

The team will be carrying various kinds of equipment including sensors for the purpose of studying variation in temperature, the carbondioxide content upon the ocean and also do biological sampling. The scientists already have data pertaining to the sea before the cyclone hit Visakhapatnam and they will compare the new data that they will gather with the previous one.

Scientists said that though during this time of the year tropical cyclones are a common occurrence, 'Hudhud' had shown that it was different altogether because of the windspeeds that had been recorded.

The findings of the latest study will help understand if some drastic changes in the sea have taken place and if future cyclones are also likely to have such great windspeeds. The study results will help in being prepared to face such cyclones.

The National Institute of Oceanography which has its headquarters at Dona Paula, Goa, also has regional centers at Kochi, Mumbai and Visakhapatnam. It is one of the 38 constituent laboratories of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), New Delhi.
