  • Estimation of Soil Erosion for Sheonath River Basin by Using RUSLE and GIS
    • Authors: dipali tamboli, L. K. Yadu
      Abstract: Abstract Soil erosion is biggest problem throughout the world and its various hazardous impacts on human; it affects the quality of soil as well as quality of water. Its assessment and mapping of erosion prone area are very essential for soil conservation and watershed management. There are various models developed for soil loss estimation. Revised universal soil loss equation is most widely used. In present study, the RUSLE method is used in combination with remote sensing and GIS techniques to estimate annual soil loss due to erosion in Sheonath River basin, Chhattisgarh (India). GIS is most useful software to integrate with other model and gives good result. RUSLE model involves five parameters which are: rainfall erosivity, soil erodibility, length slope value, crop management and support practice factor. These parameters are determined from precipitation data, soil survey data, digital elevation model (DEM) and land use land cover data. Data collected from Chhattisgarh water resource department, Chhattisgarh council of science and technology and Aster DEM is used. Most of the area is covered by agricultural land. After the investigations of present study, it has been found that the average annual soil of the study area is 1.2 t/ha/year, which is not considered as good as it should be as per the guidelines given by international soil science society (ISSS). Results of soil erosion loss prediction can be used for local level soil conservation planning, because RULSE model in integration with remote sensing techniques produces efficient and reliable results.   Keywords: Soil erosion, GIS, DEM, RUSLE model, ISSS Cite this Article Dipali Tamboli, Yadu LK.

  • Site Suitability Analysis of Soil and Water Conservation Structures in
           Sillod Watershed, Maharashtra, India using Geographic Information System
           Approach: A Case Study
    • Authors: Rushikesh Mahendra Ambhore, D. G. Regulwar
      Abstract: Abstract Watershed development and management programs envisage the development activities along with sustainable utilization of natural resources would raise the living standards of watershed inhabitants. Construction of soil and water conservation structures is the main activity of watershed development program. Location of soil and water harvesting structures in watershed is very important factor for efficient watershed development program. Construction of water harvesting structures at best suitable location will not only conserve the water optimally but also prevent unnecessary huge investment on unproductive structures. Satellite remote sensing provides reliable and accurate information on natural resources, which is pre-requisite for planned and balanced development at watershed level. Geographic information system (GIS) is used as a tool for the case study of GP-IV watershed in Sillod area Aurangabad district, Maharashtra India, for selecting best suitable sites for water harvesting structures and also soil conservation structures position is suggested. The various thematic maps such as land use land cover, slope map and soil map were prepared which will be necessary for selecting best suitable site for construction of water harvesting structures. 15 water harvesting structures and six percolation tanks were proposed at suitable location according to guidelines suggested by Integrated Mission for Sustainable Development (IMSD), Department of Space, Govt. of India. For suggesting soil conservation structures, slope map is prepared according to land capability classes from digital elevation model and different structures are suggested for group of classes. The Thronthwaite Mather water balance technique is used to predict stream runoff for the same watershed.   Keywords: Geographic information system, watershed management, soil conservation, runoff estimation, surface water balance Cite this Article Ambhore RM, Regulwar DG.

  • NDVI: Irrigation Performance Evaluation Using RS and GIS
    • Authors: S. J. Gatkal, P. A. Sadgir
      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, the effect of irrigation has been assessed based on fluctuations in crop productivity in temporal and spatial scale from normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) obtained from moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) for the years 2001, 2006, 2011 and 2016. For this study, we selected the Jayakwadi reservoir command areas in Marathawada region of Maharashtra. Using GIS techniques, delineated and LULC map was generated indicating agricultural lands. And using NDVI, irrigated Kharif and Rabi crops were identified and changes in productivity were studied. Then, by comparing the results for the pre-irrigated and post-irrigated scenarios and the changes in the irrigation performances were checked. This field also helped in identifying under-irrigated areas of projects with scope for future expansion and thus, enhanced performance.   Keywords: NDVI, MODIS, LULC, RS, QGIS, AVHRR Cite this Article Gatkal SJ, Sadgir PA.

  • Effect of Earthquake on Embankment based on Reliability Index Using
           Spreadsheet Optimization Method
    • Authors: Kefayet Shafia, Md. Shafiqul Islam
      Abstract: Abstract To obtain varying parametric sensitivities from case to case, a reliability analysis is most efficient method for designing any structure. Reliability based design illustrates the standard deviations and the correlation structure of the input parameters. The aim of this paper is to delineate the ultimate limit states or reliability based assessment and to describe the reliability index or Hasofer-Lind (H-L) index using object-oriented constrained optimization in the ubiquitous spread sheet platform of the concrete embankment leading to earthquake force and non-earthquake force. To evaluate the H-L second moment reliability index that depends not only on the mean values of the parameters but also on their scatters which is a more rational approach.  For calculation of traditional safety factor or reliability indices the tallest monolith of the pine flat concrete dam is used as an example case. The H-L index i.e. reliability index value (β) is found to be about 2–16 times greater while considering earthquake force than the condition when the earthquake force is not considered for the same design variables (up-stream water head H1 and down-stream water head H2). This paper represents the potential reflection of the reliability based analysis and design of stabilized concrete dam provides a consistent level of structural reliability in the stability analysis of such structure when some measures of safety is ascertained by conventional factor of safety approach in the stability analysis and subsequent remedial design.

  • Applicability of SWMM Model for Urban Flood Forecasting: A Review
    • Authors: Mohit P. Kalwani, Husain Seva, Rajas Mohite, Abhishek Sharma, A.S. Ghate, V. Sivakumar
      Abstract: Urbanization, the major goal for the emerging economies, with which come the major concerns, flood conditions being one of them. The huge losses of infrastructure and lives have alarmed us with the need to tackle this situation in an effective and sustainable manner. Flood forecasting and its management is the only sail through the narrow gap between the disasters and prosperity. Precipitation is the major component of the hydrologic cycle and the primary source of runoff. The perennial concretization increases runoff and overwhelms the drainage networks leading to flooding condition. When overflows exist, it becomes difficult to reproduce the actual flood extents using traditional techniques. Detailed hydrological and hydraulic modelling is undertaken for urban storm water and wastewater catchments to assess network performance and develop remediation ideas. On the basis of the review of the present research works, availability, feasibility, user-friendliness and effective output of the analysis, we have selected SWMM to put a review about. The study is accomplished analyzing a number of research works using the most underrepresented modelling software, USEPA’s open source, and freeware Storm Water Management Model (SWMM 5.1). This review outlines the technical capabilities and functionalities of SWMM from different works by experienced researchers and engineers of qualified backgrounds.   Keywords: Run off, urbanization, SWMM model, urban storm water, hydraulic, hydrologicalCite this Article Mohit P.

  • Sensitivity of Shape Factor Impacts in Water Works Infrastructure Failure
    • Authors: Gholamhossein Akbari, Ali Akbar Etesam
      Abstract: Abstract Simple geometry used in water software and hydride sign works was failed here. Comprehensive real data with complex irregular geometries were incorporated provided for wider application and feasible solutions. A realistic and more practical approach was tested, found reliable and compatible with water engineering principles considered for calculation of volumetric water rates by three types of Ogee shapes. Results indicated proximity between numerical and experimental data accurately predicted based on developed practical codes. Geometrical characteristics had impact on optimized height, and volume of water behind the dam affected the hydraulic variables. The most common overflow hydraulic structure was analyzed for optimal safety in operation and maintenance. Sensitivity analysis was made to secure reliable geometry for construction and maintenance of the dam provided with optimum design of hydraulic parameters and the hydraulic system. The developed scheme responded well based on computational, geometrical and hydraulics of variables for three types of spillways. Results were compared through experimental observations and measurements verified the superiority of developed approach and new performances. The enhanced modeling considered multi-variable objective functions for best fitting nonlinear variables in complicated hydro-environmental system.

  • Examining the Influence of DEM Resolution in Flood Hazard Assessment using
           the Flood Modeller Pro 2D Solver
    • Authors: Ioannis Tsitroulis, Apostolos Vasileiou
      Abstract: Abstract Floods are the most frequent natural hazards that threat the human life, environment and infrastructure. The flood prediction models that have wide use in the recent years represent important tools for flood management decisions aiming to mitigate the impacts of the flood events. The accuracy of the constructed prediction models is based on the quality of the primary data, such as the terrain’s resolution. This study examines the effect of different digital elevation models’ (DEM) resolution in flood hazard assessment. In particular, it used the Flood Modeller Pro software in two-dimensional approach simulating the hydraulic characteristics of the flow in a wide plain area. The results are compared in terms of water’s depth, water’s velocity and flood hazard mapping quality, showing that the DEM’s greater resolution enhances the flood prediction models’ accuracy.

  • Braided River: Aspects and Issues
    • Authors: amir khan, Nayan Sharma, Hari Narayan Tiwar
      Abstract:   Abstract River braiding is characterized by division of channel around the islands. The island grows as the deposition of the coarser fraction, which cannot be transported, starts. Understanding the dynamic and deposition characteristics of braided river requires an interdisciplinary approach, although many advances have been made in past decade in understanding the different characteristics of braided rivers such as mechanics of flow and sedimentary deposition architecture of braided rivers, many salient issues of the braided river remain to be addressed. The aim of this study is to bring together research works from various fields in an integrated approach to braided rivers. Braiding process has been comparatively understudied as compared to meandering process because of the difficulties in measuring sediment transport in the rapidly changing braided river geomorphology.

  • Managing Hydro Resources of Pakistan: A Proactive Approach for Disaster
           Response
    • Authors: Razia Shareef, Arshad Ali, Hisham bin Hafeez Awan
      Abstract: Abstract Our county has been bestowed with sufficient water resources, yet it is facing water shortages due to mismanagement and changing weather phenomena. Pakistan’s vulnerability to natural hazards had increased many folds because of this issue, in the shape of floods and droughts. The efforts should be augmented by prudent policies of creating new dams and local storage facilities. To the contrary, Pakistan has witnessed a strange complacency and lack of commitment since its birth. Probably, the national planners were awaiting a situation as they did not prepare themselves for the upcoming challenges. Pakistan has certainly lost both, in time and in national productivity and today, it is facing a crisis situation. Pakistan’s economy rests on agriculture productivity. A good crop year allows self-sufficiency in grain production and a lean year has an overall retarding effect on economic growth. In view of its pivotal importance in the overall economy and resilience of the society in all aspects, we require to look into the matter to reduce our vulnerabilities. This paper constitutes the present water resources of Pakistan. Vulnerabilities, Pakistan faces because of water crises situation including food security, Indus water issues and agricultural practices. Few of the government’s initiatives are highlighted to tackle water crises situation. Finally, few of the recommendations are given how to counter that vulnerability and turn in to capacity for Pakistan’s economic and social resilience.
