Climate change and overpopulation have led to an increase in water demands worldwide. As a result, land subsidence due to groundwater extraction and water level decline is causing damage to communities in arid and semiarid regions. The agricultural plain of Samalghan in Iran has recently experienced wide areas of land subsidence, which is...

Place attachment and ecocentric attitude are the important determinants of conservation behaviour, especially for traditionally managed landscapes. In this paper, we explore the relationship between place attachment and the ecocentric attitude of farmers engaged in Jhum cultivation (aka shifting/slash and burn cultivation) in the Zunheboto district...

A common phenomenon associated with alluvial rivers is their meander evolution, eventually
forming cutoffs. Point bar deposits and ox-bow lakes are the products of lateral bend
migration and meander cutoff. The present study focuses on identifying the meanders of
River Manu and their cutoffs. Moreover, this study compares the temporal evolution...

River meandering and anabranching have become major problems in many large rivers that carry significant amounts of sediment worldwide. The morphodynamics of these rivers are complex due to the temporal variation of flows. However, the availability of remote sensing data and geographic information systems (GISs) provides the opportunity to analyze...

Globally, estimating crop acreage and yield is one of the most critical issues that policy and
decision makers need for assessing annual crop productivity and food supply. Nowadays, satellite
remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) can enable the estimation of these crop
production parameters over large geographic areas. The...

Landslides are critical natural disasters characterized by a downward movement of land
masses. As one of the deadliest types of disasters worldwide, they have a high death toll every year
and cause a large amount of economic damage. The transition between urban and rural areas is
characterized by highways, which, in rugged Himalayan terrain...

In this paper, the quality of a source of drinking water is assessed by measuring eight water quality (WQ) parameters using 710 samples collected from a water-stressed region of India, Jodhpur Rajasthan. The entire sample was divided into ten groups representing different geographic locations. Using American Public Health Association (APHA)...

In September 2014, Kashmir witnessed a catastrophic flood resulting in a significant loss
of lives and property. Such massive losses could have been avoided if any structural support such
as dams were constructed in the Jhelum basin, which has a history of devastating floods. The GIS based
multicriteria analysis (MCA) model provided three...

Population increase has placed ever-increasing demands on the available groundwater
(GW) resources, particularly for intensive agricultural activities. In India, groundwater is the backbone
of agriculture and drinking purposes. In the present study, an assessment of groundwater
reserves was carried out in the Udaipur district, Aravalli range...

Despite being a biodiversity hotspot, the Mahanadi delta is facing groundwater salinization as one of the main environmental threats in the recent past. Hence, this study attempts to understand the dynamics of groundwater and its sustainable management options through numerical simulation in the Jagatsinghpur deltaic region. The result shows that...
