Dinesan V P, Anitha A B and Gopakumar R (), Water resources scenario of Bharathapuzha river basin’, Proc National Seminar on Indian Environment Congress –organized by Centre for Environment and Development, Trivandrum,December Hydrogeological Studies and Groundwater Modelling- Bharathapuzha basin, Kerala, India is now in a process of very extensive development, primarily for rural water GIS applications for.

Hydrochemical investigation of open well Water resources development of Bharathapuzha basin book river water samples of Thuthapuzha Sub-basin of Bharathapuzha, Kerala, was carried out to determine the spatial and temporal variations in the physico.

A study of the spatial and temporal changes in land use and land cover (LULC) was conducted using Remote Sensing and GIS. We analyzed the LULC of Bharathapuzha river basin, south India using multispectral LANDSAT imageries of time periods.

31% depletion in the natural vegetation cover and % depletion in wetland agriculture area were seen in the basin during the by:   The all-time high coliform count recorded in the once mighty Bharathapuzha, which continues to remain a major drinking water source for Palakkad.

Hydrochemical investigation of open well and river water samples of Thuthapuzha Sub-basin of Bharathapuzha, Kerala, was carried out to determine the spatial and temporal variations in the physico-chemical parameters.

The suitability of water for drinking and irrigation purposes and the processes controlling the water chemistry were also assessed. The study area experiences a humid Cited by: 1.

For arid and semiarid areas, where meteorological and hydrological monitoring data are scarce, it is particularly important to select appropriate methods to quantify the contribution rates of land use and climate change [].Many studies have been carried out on the impact of climate and land use change on the water resources of a basin [14,15,16].

Date: Ma   A morphometric analysis of Bharathapuzha river basin has been carried out using geoprocessing techniques in GIS. This technique is found relevant for the extraction of river basin and its drainage networks.

The extracted drainage network was classified according to Strahler’s system of classification and it reveals that the terrain exhibits dendritic to sub-dendritic drainage by: Central Water Commission is a premier Technical Organization of India in the field of Water Resources and is presently functioning as an attached office of the Ministry of Jal Shakti, Department of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, Government of India.

The present study was carried out in one of the less studied Bharathapuzha river basin (BRB), the second longest river in the state of Kerala, by: 2.

Interbasin transfer or transbasin diversion are (often hyphenated) terms used to describe man-made conveyance schemes which move water from one river basin where it is available, to another basin where water is less available or could be utilized better for human development.

The purpose of such designed schemes can be to alleviate water shortages in the receiving basin, to generate. The Indus River provides key water resources for Pakistan's economy – especially the breadbasket of Punjab province, which accounts for most of the nation's agricultural production, and Sindh.

The word Punjab means "land of five rivers" and the five rivers are Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Beas and Sutlej, all of which finally flow into the : Leh, Skardu, Dasu, Besham, Thakot, Swabi, Dera.

Besides afforestation, argues T N N Bhattathiripad, director of the Rajiv Gandhi Drinking Water Technology Mission, Palakkad, a complete ban on sandmining from river beds, and on the construction of check-dams at particular points, could prevent the death of the Bharathapuzha.
