Quantitative data on water quality: A compilation of papers that present physico-chemical analyses of various water sources in IndiaPosted on 24 Feb, 2012 08:31 AM
Assessment of physico-chemical quality of groundwater in rural area nearby Sagar city, Madhya Pradesh
This paper presents the results of forty groundwater samples collected from June 2007 to July 2010 in Gambhira and Baheria villages in Madhya Pradesh. The authors conclude that the ground water quality is degraded due to anthropogenic causes.
Interpolation of groundwater levels using kriging in Sagar district – A research report by National Institute of HydrologyPosted on 28 Jul, 2010 03:14 PM
In this report, an application of kriging technique is presented for interpolation of groundwater levels in Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh. Groundwater management is important to meet the increasing demand for domestic, agricultural and industrial use. Various management measures need to know the spatial and temporal behavior of groundwater. Most of the groundwater models require the inputs to be available on a grid pattern. However in the field, these parameters are generally measured at random points. However, interpolation of parameters at the grid nodes is a prerequisite for using this data in groundwater modeling.
Groundwater quality monitoring and evaluation in Sagar district – A research report by National Institute of HydrologyPosted on 28 Jul, 2010 02:23 PM
The report presents a hydrochemical study of the groundwater of Sagar, Madhya Pradesh carried out during 1996 to examine the suitability of water for drinking and irrigation purposes. Under the study, thirty-five water samples representing the shallow groundwater of the region were collected during pre-monsoon and post-monsoon seasons in the month of June and November 1996 respectively.
The report attempts to compile all the published works on the Sagar lake in one place. This includes brief description of the historical and the geographical background of the lake, details of water quality analysis carried out in various years, present position of the lake and various schemes proposed and implemented for the improvement of the condition of the lake.
Estimation of runoff from Bewas basin using SCS Curve Number method - A research report by National Institute of HydrologyPosted on 29 Jun, 2010 10:10 AM
In the study, Soil Conservation Services Curve Number (SCS-CN) method is used to predict runoff volume from the Bewas basin at a dam site meant to augment municipal drinking water supply to Sagar city. The SCS-CN model involves relationship between land use, land cover, hydrologic soil class, and runoff Curve Number of hydrologic soil cover complex, which in turn is a function of soil type, land cover and antecedent moisture condition.
Statistical analysis of rainfall in Sagar division - A research report by the National Institute of HydrologyPosted on 22 Jun, 2010 08:05 AM
The study seeks to understand the problem of rainfall, particularly for identification of any trend or persistence in the rainfall series in the five districts of Sagar division of Madhya Pradesh. A statistical analysis of the rainfall pattern is conducted using World Meteorological Organization (WMO) recommended statistical techniques for climatological analysis. Besides studying the statistical parameters and cross correlation, other techniques like linear regression and polynomial regression have been applied to identify the presence of any trend.
