Publication: Groundwater Level Dynamics in Bengaluru City, India

Posted on Posted in Consultancy, GIS solutions, Mathematical Modelling, News, Urban planning

Groundwater accounts for half of Indian urban water use. However, little is known about its sustainability, because of inadequate monitoring and evaluation. We deployed a dense monitoring network in 154 locations in Bengaluru, India between 2015 and 2017. Groundwater levels collected at these locations were analyzed to understand the behavior of the city’s groundwater system. […]

Publication: A Framework for Assessment of Climate Change Impacts on Groundwater System Formations

Posted on Posted in GIS solutions, Mathematical Modelling, Uncategorized

In order to understand the impact of climate change on vegetation and soil on the groundwater system comprehensively, complex coupled models that require a series of estimated parameters were run in a distributed framework for a catchment. The simple and general approach used to investigate the potential impact of climate change on groundwater fluxes forces […]

Isn’t groundwater overuse sweeping away the crops in Karnataka?

Posted on Posted in Agriculture, Disaster Management, News, Satellite Remote Sensing

Karnataka is facing third consecutive drought in significant parts of the state1. The over-use of groundwater in past2 has left little water in aquifers to mitigate the impact of drought. A considerable portion of the state has already crossed the safe limit of groundwater exploitation3. In such scenario, the prudent use of groundwater could have […]

A novel distributed groundwater model for hard rock aquifers

Posted on Posted in Mathematical Modelling, News, Water Resources

Groundwater accounts for approximately 30% of the global freshwater and is a major source of drinking water in both urban and rural areas. It is also an important source of water for the agricultural and industrial sector. The groundwater dynamics is controlled by several factors e.g. recharge due to rainfall, recharge due to leakage in […]

Satellite remote sensing for crop insurance

Posted on Posted in insurance

Our services for crop insurance are: Identification of no-sowing area. Identify area impacted by localized risks of hailstorm, landslide, and Inundation affecting isolated farms in the notified area. Prevented sowing failures (e.g. due to very low soil moisture). Analysis of weather indices. Periodical (fortnightly) crop health monitoring. Mid term loss reports. Identification of post-harvest perils […]

Weather Forecasting

Posted on Posted in agri, disaster, urban, water

The satellite soil moisture can provide the estimate of evaporation and transpiration. The information on the evaporation from the land surface and transpiration from plants can be used to enhance the short and medium term weather forecast. The weather forecast would help us in preparing for the calamities like flood and in short-term irrigation planning.
