H2S paper strip test for drinking water quality in the Pacific islands - a paper by SOPAC
The paper aims to provide scientific basis, manufacture and use of H2S strip test for drinking water quality of Pacific islands Rama Mani posted 12 years 6 months ago

This paper by SOPAC provides detailed information on scientific basis, manufacture and use of H2S paper strip test for drinking water quality, in the context of Pacific Islands, and gives suggestions on how the test can be uti

Feasibility of groundwater withdrawal in coral island (Lakshadweep)- a paper in hydrological sciences
The study published in hydrological sciences assesses the impact of additional groundwater pumping on various hydrogeological parameters rajshekar posted 12 years 6 months ago

Groundwater on a small coral island occurs in the form of a lens floating on saline water. The freshwater lens is highly sensitive to various stresses such as pumping, sea tide, etc. Since groundwater is the only source of freshwater on the island, it is not only being utilized for various purposes but also there are growing demands for increased pumping.

Groundwater modeling of unconfined aquifer system of crystalline area in Lapsiya watershed, Hazaribagh- a case study in GIS development
The study attempts for groundwater modelling exercise in Lapasiya watershed, Hazaribagh in Jharkhand to understand the behaviour of unconfined aquifer system with various input parameters rajshekar posted 12 years 6 months ago

The outcome of the model helped in identifying suitable area for groundwater augmentation on the long term. The model also helped in optimization of rate of new wells. The model has simulated up to a level to the near real field condition.
