Young Scientist of BHU selected for SIRE 2022-23 in U.S.

- To work on upgrading earthquake early warning systems in Indian scenario.


Varanasi : Dr. Sandeep Arora, Assistant Professor, Department of Geophysics, Institute of Science, Banaras Hindu University, has been selected for “SERB International Research Experience for year 2022-23 supported by Science & Engineering Research Board, Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. The fellowship has been approved for a duration of 4 months with Dr. Yihe Huang at Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Michigan, United States, to upgrade the earthquake early warning systems in the Indian scenario. Earthquakes cause huge damage to life and property worldwide every year. These losses are much higher in developing countries, like India which affects the economic development of these countries. In the absence of any trustworthy earthquake prediction method, greater focus on earthquake early warning systems (EEWS) has become the need of the hour. These systems forewarn an area about the approaching destructive waves within a few seconds. This project will bring inline the Indian EEWS with Europe and USA which consequently will improve future policies for disaster mitigation.
