India is supposed to be having expertise in space science, atomic energy and ocean science. Very often one gets news of the space programmes. Of late, there is not much news about the activities of the department of atomic energy and the institutes of this department. Similarly there is no news about the programmes in ocean science. There appears to be vast scope for development in these three sectors. These three branches could coordinate and take up research in modifying weather with a view to prevent floods and drought, moderate heat and cold etc.
