The goal of IWM-7 was to discuss recent developments in monsoon modelling, its prediction, new technologies and tools used for the prediction of extreme rainfall events, field experiments and the application of monsoon prediction capabilities to derive social benefits. The prediction of monsoon will cover all spatial and temporal scales, from weather and sub-seasonal to seasonal and decadal, as well as for long-term climate change projections, 

The workshop was arranged during 22-26 March 2022. The proceedings of IMW-7 with 22 research papers by eminent scientists across the globe on various disciplines of monsoon have been published in the special issue of IMD's journal  "MAUSAM".  The Guest Editorial team with Prof .
