Welcome to the IMSA website. This site is meant for those members of the Ahmedabad and Gujarat community who are interested in meteorology : i.e. the science behind the various natural phenomena that govern the weather events and climatic trends that impact our lives. We hope that the material collected here will be useful to school and college students who are interested in science, as well as members of the general community who are curious about the weather.
The Indian Meteorological Society (IMS) was formed in 1957 during a session of the Indian Science Congress in Calcutta. Dr. S. Basu, the Director-General of Observations was the first President of the Society. The IMS Ahmedabad chapter (IMSA) was formed in the late-1970s under the leadership of Dr. M.S. Narayanan.
