Dr. Balaji Narasimhan is a Hydrologist with expertise in modelling the impact of land use and climate change on hydrology using GIS, remote sensing and hydrologic / hydraulic / crop growth models with experience of over 15 years. He is currently involved in a project funded by the Department of Science and Technology to design and develop Low Impact Development (LID) measures in the form of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) for reducing flooding and improving water security of cities such as Chennai. Balaji Narasimhan served as an advisor to CLIMARICE project, Sponsored by Norwegian Government at Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore. ClimaRice is an integrated project that aims to assess the climate variability and its impacts on the water availability and rice production systems in the Cauvery river basin of Tamil Nadu, India. He is one of the coordinators involved in the development of the Ganga River Basin Management Plan and is the lead investigator in the development of a hydrological flow health condition report for the entire Ganga River Basin. Balaji Narasimhan was also a Member of “Think Tank” for development of Water Resources Information System (WRIS), Ministry of Water Resources, Govt. of India. He was involved in a large team project to develop a flood forecasting system for Chennai city, following the floods of 2015, funded by the Principal Scientific Advisor, Govt. of India.
