Various river basin studies are going on these days, such as development of Ganga River basin management plan, Yamuna River basin management plan, Bhagirathi River basin plan, etc. in India and various others in South Asia
Relevant to the professionals working in the field of water resources and environment
Relevant to many graduate courses in hydrology, water resources engineering, water resources management
Addresses environmental flow estimation techniques and water resources conservation and management through cropping pattern changes
Addresses climate change detection techniques
Addresses analyses of climatic variables, such as rainfall, temperature, humidity, wind, potential evapotranspiration, etc.
Addresses water balancing for basins and simple flood estimation techniques, etc.
This book is designed to provide concepts, methodologies, and approaches for river basin studies with respect to water resources and environment. The book is not limited to the Yamuna River basin, but will help in the study of various other river basins for integrated water resources management. The book covers the essential components of integrated water resources management, including analysis of climatic variables, climate change detection, analysis of natural resources, geology, geomorphology, socio-economics, water budgeting, flood estimation, river pollution, etc. Furthermore, the book addresses recent issues pertaining to water quality, water quality indices, environmental flows, water resources mangement through cropping pattern change, etc. along with methodologies and application to the Yamuna River system. However, the main objective of this book is to address important issues of water resources management of river basins.
Audience: The manuscript has been designed so that it can be used as a reference for river basin studies. The book will be useful to engineers, agricultural scientists, environmentalists, planners, managers, and administrators who are concerned with water resources.
