|Abstract||The ozone data obtained from Nimbus-7 and Earth probe Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) has been used to study theimpact of coronal mass ejection (CME) on the columnar ozone concentration in India. A comparison of columnar ozone values for different solarproton events (SPE) observed at Srinagar indicates that although the 20th Jan., 2005 SPE was the most intense in the last 15 years, the ozone depletionwas found to be maximum in the 23rd March, 1991 event followed by 20th Jan., 2005, 4th Nov., 2001, 19th Oct., 1989 and 28th Oct., 2003 events. Acomparison between the ozone levels observed in different Indian cities for a few days after the 20th Jan., 2005 SPE indicates that the ozone values werefound to decrease sharply at higher latitudes compared to places located in the tropics .The ozone values measured by TOMS, Dobson Spectrometerand AURA Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) were found to decrease for a short period from 20th January to 25th January after which the ozonelevels started recovering to normal values. The vertical ozone profiles obtained from Microwave Limb Sounder for New Delhi, indicate that the ozonemixingratio in the 3.0 to 10.0 hPa pressure range decreased consistently from 21st Jan., 2005 to 25th Jan., 2005 and thereafter, recovered by the 31stJanuary, 2005.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
