Five Most Popular English Movies (Fiction) on “Climate Change and its Impacts on Water Resources”

Students working in the field of climate change and water resource modeling often complain that they can’t see what they are predicting. They are confused about the reliability of their models and depend on some statistical indices to analyze the accuracy of their predictions. But if they want to have an idea about the reality of their predictions then they must watch the following five movies which simulate the future based on one or more climate change based impacts:.....

7 most recent application of GIS in the identification of suitable location for rain water harvesting

The water crisis has been rapidly increasing these days in many parts of the world which emphasize the importance of refinement in water management systems. Harvesting of rainwater(or rainwater harvesting(RWH)), which involves the collection and storage of rainwater for future use, is an area of increasing interest and one of the most suitable measures for ensuring water availability in the future days. The location of RWH is of utmost importance for the success of the water harvesting project. Locations for the construction of RWH structures like check dams, percolation tanks, bench terraces, contour ridges, and contour bunds can be determined by the application of Geographical Information System(GIS), Multi-Criteria Decision Making(MCDM), and different predictive models. Below are the seven recent case studies which demonstrate the procedure of location selection for RWH. 1) Case Study of Kiambu County-Kenya The ideal sites for five rainwater harvesting structures (bench terraces, ch

Seven New Runoff Prediction Models

Runoff Prediction Models Runoff Prediction Models(RPM) are those models which predict the runoff or flood peak of a watershed or input runoff to a dam etc. Generally, such models require climatic parameters, geomorphology, soil characteristics, and land cover as input against which a runoff model can predict the monthly, weekly, daily, or even hourly runoff. These models can be spatially distributed or lumped, temporally long or short, data-driven or conceptual.  In recent years due to the massive development in data-driven and smart concepts like artificial neural networks(ANN), decision trees, and evolutionary algorithms, application of such techniques are now common to develop RPMs. Among data-driven techniques, ANN is the most popular, followed by evolutional algorithms. But compared to the standalone application of neural networks, hybrid models where ANN with conceptual models like HyMOD or HEC is found to be more successful. Hydrologic models like RPMs need to be calibrated and

Five Most Innovative Rain Water Harvesting Projects

Rainwater harvesting is known to be one of the most prominent solutions to the impending vulnerability of many watersheds all over the world due to climate change impacts. The rejuvenation of the watersheds with the help of innovative rainwater harvesting can prevent further deterioration of the basins. Below are the five most intelligent water harvesting methods adopted by the stakeholders to restore their watersheds which ensured their sustainability. Mega muddy rainwater harvesting System/project "Harvested water is used for fish farming, banana plantation, Sericulture, Floriculture and for other purposes." Story of Dhun "the first step for his dream project was to bring water to this dry land and using traditional water harvesting practices the land today has more than 8 waterbodies in it..." Rain Water Harvesting in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Uganda "There is hardly a place in the world where it never rains. Rainwater belongs to everyone. And the methods to coll

FIVE MOST PROMISING TOPICS OF RESEARCH IN RAINFALL NOWCASTING

See the video or Download the clickable version The process of forecasting the rainfall after two or less than two-hour is known as Rainfall nowcasts(RN). The model which predicts such a very short-term storm is referred to as the Rainfall Nowcasting model (RNM). Due to the high amount of variability involved the development of accurate nowcast models is a challenging task. Due to the increase in climatic variability and urbanization, the need for such models for the design and development of accommodative infrastructures is increasing. That is why five of the most important research topics related to rainfall nowcasting are delineated below : @Mrinmoy's Page Share your data requirement , @Merchandise or @ Shop Add to Listy

Five most promissing topics of research in Building Induced Rainfall Redistribution(BIRR)

BIRR is referred as the impact of impervious areas on the distribution of water after rainfall. The area, type, and texture of various impervious areas like buildings, pavements, roads, etc. do not allow rainfall to infiltrate the soil cover and enforced the water droplets to flow off the watershed as runoff. The impact of buildings on rainfall redistribution and its effect on water availability can yield interesting and useful research proposals. Five of which are listed below: Impact of BIRR on flood forecasting models Impact of BIRR on hydrologic response Impact of BIRR on desertification Impact of BIRR on water quality Impact of BIRR on watershed vulnerability Click here to download the entire report  or view the video below : Available in Slide share mode also. @Mrinmoy's Page @Merchandise or @ Shop Add to Listy
