  author={Chanchal Chaudhuri and Shruti Tripathi and R Srivastava and Arkajyoti Misra},
A Himalayan cloudburst event, which occurred on 3 August 2012 in the Uttarkashi (30.73 N, 78.45 E) region of Uttarakhand, India, was analyzed. The near-surface atmospheric variables were analyzed to study the formation, evolution, and triggering mechanisms of this cloudburst. In order to improve upon the understanding provided by the observations, numerical simulations were performed using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model, configured with a single domain at 18 km resolution.
