Garudeshwar dam: for a statue or for people?

The dam in Gujarat's Bharuch district will act as downstream storage for the Sardar Sarovar project which means it can't be used for irrigation, flood control or even net power generation.However, it will create a reservoir around the 'Statue of Unity' proposed to be world's tallest statue

Policy matters this week: Tribunal resolves Goa-Karnataka dispute over water project; TN protests Karnataka's water scheme in Cauvery basin; Resolve Delhi-Haryana water dispute: HC to Centre.

MoEF finally notifies 37% of Western Ghats as no-go zone

The study investigates the uncertainties in regional scenarios developed for relative humidity due to the choice of emission scenarios.

This paper in Journal of Earth Systems Science deals with uncertainties in downscaled relative humidity for a semi-arid region - Malaprabha basin in India. Researchers and decision-makers who assess the impact of climate change in river basin development, agriculture, hydrology, irrigation management, etc., require future scenarios of relative humidity.

This study attempts to estimate the soil erosion rate in Malaprabha representative basin in Karnataka, by using WEPP model and Universal Soil Loss Equation.

In the present study, an attempt has been made to estimate the soil erosion rate in Malaprabha representative basin by using WEPP model and Universal Soil Loss Equation. Soil erosion and sedimentation are the two important natural processes, which need immediate attention from the scientific community. Two major types of erosion are geological erosion and erosion from human or animal activities.

The study uses HEC-RAS to analyse the water surface profiles of Malaprabha river system upto Khanapur for different combinations of discharges through various reaches of the river system.

The study uses HEC-RAS to analyse the water surface profiles of Malaprabha river system upto Khanapur for different combinations of discharges through various reaches of the river system. The river system is divided into eleven reaches, and forty one cross sections have been measured and interpolated within these reaches.

Discharge values have been assigned for different reaches according to the ratio of contributing area for each reach. The bridge across the river at Khanapur is reproduced in the modeling system to test its capabilities. Various return period floods have been allowed to pass through the river system to compute the individual water surface profiles.

The hydrological study of the Krishna river basin attempts to standardize and develop methodologies for providing solutions for various hydrological problems of the hard rock regions of India.

The hydrological study for the experimental representative basins, Ghataprabha and Malaprabha, of the Krishna river basin attempts to standardize and develop methodologies for providing solutions for understanding and solving various hydrological problems of the hard rock regions of India.

Representative basins are basins, which are selected as representative of a hydrological region within which hydrological similarity is presumed and can be used for intensive investigation of specific problems of the hydrological cycle. This can then take a wide-ranging role representing a broad area to which the data can be transferred.

The workshop brings together shared understanding of the issues related to land and water management of Malaprabha river basin, concerns and assist in developing strategies at stakeholder levels.

This document deals with the proceeding of the final stakeholder workshop titled “Exploring options for sustainable water management in the Malaprabha River Basin”. The one day workshop was jointly organised by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Environment and Development (CISED) and the Norwegian Institute of Water Research (NIVA) at Belgaum on 5th November 2008.

Tools and methodologies developed by India-PES were tested in Malaprabha river basin, Karnataka, and PES implementation was focussed on participatory irrigation management.

The India-PES  initiative, was a collaborative effort undertaken on a pilot basis, by CISED and NIVA, for the development of integrated tools and consulting services for Watershed Management and 'Payments for Environmental Services' (PES) in India.
