In a very first of its kind, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) lab has come up with a system with which climate change could get studies through frequencies. The climate change through analysis of ecological sediments could be done through the shift in frequencies in the laboratory. JNU will be the first Indian university to achieve this feat.

The laboratory in JNU, which has devised this technology, is funded by the Department of Science and Technology under its Climate Change Programme. The central government is directly involved with the laboratory and its functions. According to the Professor of Centre for the Study of Regional Development, School of Social Sciences at JNU, Milap Chandra, “This is the first laboratory of its type under the Indian university system which would not only facilitate dating the sediments specific to landforms evolved under a specific climate phase, but also date any archaeological artifacts of burnt origin for historical reconstructions.”

This facility is the laboratory is expected to strengthen the scientific enquiry of the past climate change. It can open up new avenues in the field of research associated with the global climate change and allow scholars to study the various patterns of climate efficiently. This can also act as a proxy to help build the manpower for climate related research and derive results in a more concrete manner. Such studies through the frequencies could take down the study time of the climate change drastically, making it easier for better analysis and in depth study.
