The first-of-a-kind study has used remote sensing data to quantify long-term soil losses across the entire Western Ghats region.
The Western Ghats Region (WGR) is a unique landscape found in India along the western part of the Indian subcontinent, right from the south of Gujarat in the north to Kerala and Tamil Nadu in the south. It is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and represents one of the Earth’s 36 biodiversity hotspots. However, given the pressures of unsustainable and unplanned activities, the region is facing numerous challenges.
The SSB Prize 2022 to Prof. Debabrata Maiti of IIT Bombay is in recognition of his work on valorisation.
Prof. Debabrata Maiti, Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Interdisciplinary Programme in Climate Studies (IDPCS), Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay), has been awarded the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize 2022 by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

First experimental demonstration of a 4T- silicon-perovskite tandem solar cell from India, with efficiency greater than 26%.
A team at the National Centre for Photovoltaic Research and Education (NCPRE) at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) has fabricated a novel semi-transparent perovskite solar cell (PSC) and, by combining it with a silicon-based solar cell, has demonstrated an efficiency of more than 26% for such a cell.
Researchers have come up with an innovative approach for measuring the coating performance.
How often have we not encountered corrosion in some of our devices? Although there would be some coating to prevent them, the performance of the coated material deteriorates over time. These can affect the overall performance of the device itself.
