As the TN farmers’ protest in Delhi enters its fourth week, all eyes are on the Centre which is not budging.

A woman stands with a begging bowl and a placard strung around her neck. An old man shuffles along barefoot in the street at Jantar Mantar, the official site of a farmers’ protest in the heart of New Delhi. He finds his way through a group of farmers gathered at the protest site on a hot summer afternoon. Dressed in green loincloths, they are lying motionless on the road and the footpath exhausted after their meetings with the deputy speaker of Lok Sabha M.

Hi,

I got district-wise rainfall data that is available from 1901-2002 and then from 2004 -2012. I was not able to find any rainfall data for the year 2003. It would be great if someone can assist with this. I need the monthly rainfall data for Madurai and Theni districts in Tamilnadu for the year 2003 .

Please help me in acquiring this data,

Praveen

Steep fall in water table worries Tamil Nadu

Ground water level has fallen sharply even in Coimbatore and Theni, the districts abutting the forested Western Ghats region. Across the state, water table has fallen by 0.5 metres to 2.3 metres in the last one year

Water level in Narmada dams hits record low

I am in the process of digging a 6 inch tubewell for irrigation purposes. Depth of the bore will be 650 feet.

Kindly advise a cost effective solution to lift water from 500 -600 feet from ground level. Which option will be cost effective i.e., compressor pump or submersible pump ?

My friend in Theni, Tamil Nadu has a 60 acre farm, of which 50 is laid out with an orchard of pomegrante, lime, sapota and trees like teak, etc. There are approximately about 3000 trees on this 50 acres. He has installed drip irrigation.

If he were to discontinue reliance on groundwater which is now at about 400 feet, what size and depth of a pond would he have to construct to ensure that water for 9 months a year for all trees is available through rainwater harvesting?

This study attempts to explain flood wave propagation in natural and artificial channels within the perspective of site-specific rating curve.

The study attempts to explain flood wave propagation in natural and artificial channels within the perspective of site-specific rating curve. The study looks at the impacts of channel characteristics – bed slope, flood plains, channel shape, expansion-contraction combination, inactive storage, Manning’s roughness, expansion and contraction on flood wave propagation.
