Vulnerability Analysis of Water Resources of Peri-urban Watersheds in face of Climatic Abnormalities : Call for Paper




You are invited to submit a paper for possible inclusion in the forthcoming monograph entitled:

Vulnerability Analysis of Water Resources of Peri-urban Watersheds in face of Climatic Abnormalities

Abstract:

The uncontrolled utilization of water resources and burgeoning population and their demand for luxury has induced abnormal warming of the global climate. As a result, the regular pattern of climate has been compromised which has multifaceted direct and passive impacts on the water resources of the river basins. Although there is a noticeable number of studies which has tried to highlight the vulnerabilities of the watersheds towards this abnormal climatic pattern but impact analysis of climatic ambiguities on the water resources of peri-urban watersheds has been rarely attempted. The peri-urban watersheds can be segregated as unique watersheds that flow through a peri-urban landscape. Such basins do not face the urbanization impacts which are encountered by the urban watersheds, but these watersheds also do not have the healthiness of rural watersheds either. That is why policymakers and planners of the peri-urban watersheds are often confused with the optimal utilization of the water resources of the basins. In this monograph, we want to highlight and showcase those studies which had depicted the solution to this problem more efficiently than the existing approaches....

M.Tech in Hydro-Informatics Engineering

Hydroinformatics? National Institute of Technology Agartala(Tripura) is offering 2 years course on M.Tech in Hydro-Informatics Engineering. Graduates from Electrical, Mechanical, Civil and MSc students of Environment Engineering, GIS are eligible to apply. If you have a valid GATE score, you can enrol through the Spot Round counselling which will be held online by the CCMT. The course is nine years old and the passed out students are either doing PhD in a reputed institute like IIT Roorkee, IIT Delhi, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Ropar etc.or have been appointed as Assistant Professor in different colleges like University of Engineering and Management(Kol), Meghnad Saha Institute of Technology(Kol) etc. Few students have also cracked the campus interview to join in L&T, Infosys etc. But according to the course coordinator, the School of Hydro-Informatics Engg., which is conducting the course, wants a student who is interested in doing research in interdisciplinary topics. As for

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
