About the organization:
NARL is an autonomous research laboratory fully funded by the Department of Space, Government of India and involved in carrying out fundamental and applied research in Atmospheric and Space Sciences. It had its humble beginning in 1992 as the National Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere(MST) Radar Facility. Over the years several complementary techniques such as Rayleigh/Mie lidars, wind profilers have been added. NARL is administered by a Governing Council with Secretary, DOS as the Chairman and Director, NARL as member secretary. The Governing Council sets broad policy guidelines for NARL. A Scientific Advisory Committee consisting of eminent scientists in the field of atmospheric science, monitors the research activities and progress of NARL and provides future directions.NARL has now become one of the prime centers for atmospheric research in the country and operates a state-of-the-art MST radar, Rayleigh/ Mie Lidar, Boundary Layer Lidar, Sodium Lidar, Lower Atmospheric Wind Profiler, Sodar, Disdrometer, Optical Rain Gauge, Dual frequency GPS receiver, Automatic Weather Station apart from regular launching of the GPS balloon sonde. Being relatively young, NARL’s research activities are spearheaded by a team of young and vibrant fulltime research scientists and students. This web site provides some salient features of the activities and experimental facilities available for national and international collaborative research work. The Scientific requirements dictated that the Indian MST Radar should be located preferably below 15° North latitude. After careful consideration of various constraints, a site (13.5°N, 79.2°E) at Gadanki Village, near the temple town of Tirupati in the state of Andhra Pradesh located on the Chittoor-Tirupati main road was selected. NARL has a picturesque landscape spreading over an area of about 55 acres.Gadanki is about 35km soutwest of Tirupati town. Regular bus services between Tirupati and chittoor ply through Gadanki.
