New Delhi, Aug. 8 (ANI): The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch two new meteorological satellites next month.

Speaking at the valedictory function of a Science Seminar in Dharwad on Sunday, ISRO Chairman A.S. Kiran Kumar said the launch would further improve weather forecast in the country.

He said weather changes that were observed every half an hour earlier would now improve to every 15 minutes observation.

This would provide good quality atmospheric profiles over Indian landmass and adjoining areas, he added. (ANI)
