കേരളത്തിലെ ജനങളുടെ രക്ഷകനായി സുരേഷ് ഗോപി


Bengaluru, June 19, 2024: Union Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Suresh Gopi, recently engaged in discussions with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) regarding the use of space technology-based inputs for analyzing flood risks associated with the Mullaperiyar and Idukki dams in Kerala12.

In light of increasing incidents of extreme weather events across India, Minister Gopi emphasized the urgent need to evaluate worst-case flood scenarios linked to these dams. ISRO Chairman Somanath S assured support in making space-based inputs, such as high-resolution terrain data, available to researchers engaged in flood modeling. These inputs will help assess probable inundation areas and identify potential rehabilitation zones. Additionally, a prototype solution integrating flood risk with rescue and rehabilitation planning, along with satellite communication capabilities, was suggested1.

Minister Gopi also stressed the importance of studying the extent and nature of siltation in the dams and exploring possible utilization of the sludge to support local industries1. His proactive approach aims to enhance disaster management strategies and mitigate flood risks in the region.

The collaboration between Union Minister Suresh Gopi and ISRO underscores the significance of leveraging cutting-edge technology to safeguard communities and critical infrastructure from natural disasters3. As Kerala faces monsoons and the looming threat of floods, this joint effort holds promise for better preparedness and resilience.
