Scientists in Norwich have travelled to India to help with a project that can predict monsoon rainfall there.
Researchers at the University of East Anglia will be using underwater robots in the Bay of Bengal to monitor how ocean conditions influence the climate.
It's hoped the £8 million project will help forecast the rains more accurately and so reduce any damage caused.
"The Indian monsoon is notoriously hard to predict. It is a very complicated weather system and the processes are not understood or recorded in science. We will be combining oceanic and atmospheric measurements to monitor weather systems as they are generated. Nobody has ever made observations on this scale during the monsoon season itself so this is a truly ground-breaking project."
The project is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council, the Newton Fund, the Indian Ministry of Earth Sciences and the UK's Met Office.
Engineers are investigating after an 8-foot deep sinkhole opened up in Norfolk last night, causing part of a garden wall to collapse.
Fire crews were called to Earl Street, in Thetford just after 6.30pm.
The hole is around 8ft deep and took down a fence gate, part of a wall and some paving as it opened.
Officers have taped off the area, but Norfolk County Council's says it's still trying to find out what caused the sinkhole.

A field full of poppies is a spectacular sight - and one which could be thought of as a gesture of remembrance.
But at a farm near Royston in Hertfordshire say they're not too happy with the poppies that have grown in one of their fields - because it's not the crop they planted.
The 60 acre field should be filled with blue linseed, but because the sprays didn't work, poppies grew instead.

Campaigners in Northampton say they're angry the county council has rejected calls for a referendum on building a huge waste incinerator in the town.
Plans for the development in the St James area of the town are expected to be submitted. But many locals say the plant, which would extract energy from refuse, would be a health hazard and pollute the town.
There has been a 400% rise in the number of wet wipes washing up on our beaches in the last ten years.
The Marine Conservation Society says around 50 wipes are found for every kilometre of coastline because too many people flush them down the toilet instead of throw them away.
They have now launched a campaign to persuade retailers and manufacturers to clearly label their wet wipe products with a 'DON'T FLUSH' message.

Asparagus farmers in the region are racing to harvest their crop at the moment.
The limited picking season had been delayed because of the cold weather earlier this year - but the recent warm spell has ripened it and supermarkets are about to be inundated with abundant supplies.
Forget the Victorian pier, stunning beach and fishing boats hauled up on the shingle, Cromer in Norfolk has added a new must-see sight for visitors to the seaside town - goats.
Eight Bagot billy goats have been brought in to graze an area of the cliff and stop it getting overgrown.
North Norfolk District Council says the new "habitat management project" will keep unwanted plant species under control.
