Climate Resilient Observing Systems Promotion Council (CROPC), is a R&D based company set up under Technology Business Incubation Plan of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi by the faculty and alumnus of the institute in 2001. The Company provides innovative customized solutions at the cutting edge of technology in the area of Natural Resource Management, GIS, Remote Sensing and Integrated Database Management. The Company is engaged in developing technical and managerial services using innovative approaches. The solutions are made highly user-friendly and interactive using GIS interface. The Company has highly qualified scientific manpower having long-term experience to provide the area specific solutions. These experts have innovative skills developed by virtue of carrying out research work in the area of water resources, hydrology, hydraulics, environment, agriculture and other allied areas over the last 30 years. The company also has a vast potential resource base in the form of faculty of IIT Delhi who are presently serving as well as those who have retired.
CROPC deals with developing hydrological models for surface water and ground water modelling, modelling of snow and glacier melt runoff, hydraulic modelling and water profile simulations, flood forecasting, inundation, flood plain zoning and flood management, sediment yield estimation, thermal and water resources projects etc.
CROPC is involved in impact assessment of climate change on water, agriculture and environment sectors, quantifying on availability of water for drinking, irrigation, hydropower generation and industrial use of water in space and time using GCMs/RCMs output data, possible changes in severity of droughts and intensity of floods etc.
CROPC has expertise to estimate environmental flows for hydropower projects considering present and future social, agricultural and aquatic scenarios, impacts of various man-made actions on the environment including the impact assessment of point and non-point source pollutants, conservation of natural environment etc.
CROPC is able to make agricultural prediction using the crop growth models and the local weather parameters, study of water-agriculture-energy-climate change nexus, adaptation of agriculture practices under projected climate scenarios, modelling of nutrients, pesticides and fertilizer movement in agriculture area.
