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.

It's a combination that some might think could be tempting fate.
Students, eggs and all the ingredients needed to make a rocket.
But this isn't the latest reality TV show, instead it's the challenge facing students taking part in the UK's largest model rocket competition.
The winners will go up against teams from the UK, Japan and France in the international finals later this year. Liz Summers stood at a safe distance in Stow Maries airfield in Essex to see what's involved.
More than a million people have downloaded a mobile phone game which is helping researcher's studying dementia.
The project saw Cambridge-based Alzheimer's Research UK team up with scientists from the University of East Anglia, UCL and a telecoms company to develop the game.
Playing the game will help our scientists understand in detail how our brains navigate space. It's reckoned that by playing the game for just 2 minutes generates the same amount of data it would take researchers 5 hours to obtain.
Find out more about the game below.

Students have found a parachute from a high altitude balloon they sent into the Near Space region of the earth's atmosphere.
Pupils at Fakenham Academy in Norfolk launched the balloon from Elsworth in Cambridgeshire, and it rose to more than 26,000 metres.
The balloon burst, as planned, when it reached high altitude and the parachute with a computer and camera attached came down at Bourne near Peterborough.
