Hydroinformatics for Groundwater Management

Hydroinfromatics can be used to manage groundwater also. Significant advancements in water research, as well as new observational and computational capabilities and infrastructures (e.g., MOSES, TERENO, VISLAB, JUWELS), present an opportunity to develop the next generation of smart, data- and model-driven water monitoring systems. Software tools are intended to aid scientists worldwide in the analysis of larger and more complex systems, as well as in the exploration of hydrological extreme scenarios and their consequences. Hydroinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that employs simulations, data science, and decision-making systems to create novel approaches to effectively, sustainably, and equitably manage water in a variety of scenarios. Groundwater resource management in water supply areas is now an essential task in order to minimize anthropogenic interference and ensure the long-term use of available water. Below five articles shows the way hydro informatics was used in the op

Hydroinformatics to make farms SMART

Smart farming focuses on increasing farm productivity through the use of technology - both hardware and software. Smart farming is concerned with the management of farms, plantations, and all associated farming activities through the use of IoT, drones, robotics, machinery, and artificial intelligence to determine a path to predictable farm output. Smart farming is concerned with the management of farm activities through the use of data obtained from various sources (historical, geographical, and instrumental). Technological advancement does not necessarily imply that a system is intelligent. Smart agriculture technologies distinguish themselves by their ability to collect and analyze data. Smart farming uses hardware (Internet of Things) and software (Software as a Service or SaaS) to collect data and provide actionable insights to manage all farm operations, both pre and post-harvest. Hydroinformatics, on the other hand, is a subject that deals with the application of data science an

Autocorrelation in Water Resource Development

A new article was posted in HydroGeek : Five Most Recent Research Works on Autocorrelation in Water Resource Management Autocorrelation is the correlation between two part of a single data series and is useful when the trendability of a parameter is approximated with the help of data. Most used in water research study. This article highlights the most recent research works on the application of autocorrelation on water resource development studies.

Peatlands can store more carbon than all the forest of the World

Most people attribute rainforests as the biggest natural carbon sink. But there’s another equally important, often overlooked type of natural carbon sink which is known as peatlands. “Peatland is a terrestrial wetland ecosystem in which the production of organic matter exceeds its decomposition and a net accumulation of peat results.”..Click here to read more about Peatland. These peatlands can conserve biodiversity, purify water and reduce flooding and soil erosion, good for planting certain crops, such as potatoes and carrots. During the mapping of global peatlands, it can be found that there is more data for the northern hemisphere compared to the southern hemisphere and the tropics. High-quality peatland extent data are only available for a small selection of countries and regions, including Canada, Sweden, and West Siberia.

FREEWAT : The Free Software for Water Resource Management

What is it? A free open-source software plugin that integrates three different groups of software that can simulate and optimize water resource-related problems. This software will work as a plugin for Q-GIS software. What it does? The software tries to simplify the application of the Water Framework Directive and other EU water-related Directives. by providing an easy-to-use input GUI and a highly sophisticated visualization window that can be integrated with common GIS software. The software comprises the following tools : As a composite plugin, FREEWAT is designed as a modular ensemble of different tools. In this framework, the following modules or group of software is available: Hydro-geological and Hydro-chemical Module : This group of tools will enable users of the software to analyze, interpret, and visualize hydrogeological and hydrochemical data and quality issues. These tools will also focus on advanced time series analysis, which can be integrated into the akvaGIS module. Hy

Waste water can detect future epidemic

“Researchers analysing wastewater say that routine monitoring at sewage treatment works could provide a powerful early warning system for the next flu or norovirus epidemic, alerting hospitals to prepare and providing public health agencies with vital health information.”.. Science Daily . Scientists at the University of Bath, Bangor University, and the UK Heath Security Agency analyzed wastewater from 10 cities for both chemical and biological markers of health, including pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and disease-causing viruses.

Arsenic responsible for gallbladder cancer ?

In a recent study, it was found that "chronic arsenic exposure in drinking water even at low-moderate levels can cause...Gall Bladder Cancer(GBC)". Assam and Bihar are two states in the country that report maximum GBC cases and they have maximum Arsenic load in groundwater or tubewell water that they consume.  This link between GBC cases and the amount of Arsenic in water imbibes the conclusion that the more Arsenic more will be the risk of GBC.  The study area was Assam and Bihar where a load of Arsenic varies from 10g/l to even 1500g/l. The sample population used in the study has a residential time span of 15 to 70 years which ensures minimum to maximum exposure to the groundwater of the area. When the Arsenic load is 1.3 to 8.9g/l risk of GBC is two times whereas when the load is 9.1 to 448.3g/l the risk is 2.4 times. But the point here is for a change in Arsenic concentration from 8.9 to 448.3g/l (i.e.,49.37 times) the cases of GBC rose by  20%. Is this sensitivity suffic
