Global freshwater scarcity is projected to be affecting almost half of the world’s population by 2025. Desalination has become a reliable option to provide freshwater, especially with climate change and its direct impact on water resources. The desalination technology transforms some non-traditional water sources either by processing brackish water...
Assessing the impacts of current and future changes of the planforms of river Brahmaputra on its land use-land cover
River bankline migration is a frequent phenomenon in the river of the floodplain region. Nowadays, channel dynamics-related changes in land use and land cover (LULC) are becoming a risk to the life and property of people living in the vicinity of rivers. A comprehensive evaluation of the causes and consequences of such changes is essential for...
Novel Ensemble Machine Learning Modeling Approach for Groundwater Potential Mapping in Parbhani District of Maharashtra, India
Groundwater is an essential source of water especially in arid and semi-arid regions of the world. The demand for water due to exponential increase in population has created stresses on available groundwater resources. Further, climate change has affected the quantity of water globally. Many parts of Indian cities are experiencing water scarcity...
Quantifying spatio-temporal variation in aquaculture production areas in Satkhira, Bangladesh using geospatial and social survey
Despite Bangladesh being one of the leading countries in aquaculture food production
worldwide, there is a considerable lack of updated scientific information about aquaculture
activities in remote sites, making it difficult to manage sustainably. This study explored the
use of geospatial and field data to monitor spatio-temporal changes in...
Rapid urbanization has led to the emergence of slums in many developing and industrialized
nations. It degrades the quality of life and burdens the urban amenities resulting in uneven
distribution of slums. The majority of people in the developing world live in squatter settlements
and these random gatherings disrupt the economic and social...
This paper examines the impact of the dike systems on river flows in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD). The study combined a hydrological
change index method and the Mann–Kendall test to assess the temporal dynamics of both discharge and water levels along the main rivers of
the VMD. Results highlight that the system of rivers and canals helps...
Assessment of Relationship between Climate Change, Drought, and Land Use and Land Cover Changes in a Semi-Mountainous Area of the Vietnamese Mekong Delta
Agriculture in the Global South is innately susceptible to climatic variability and change.
In many arid and semi-mountainous regions of the developing world, drought is regularly cited as
a significant threat to agricultural systems. The objective of this study is to assess the impacts of
climate change on drought and land use and land cover...
Understanding Dry and Wet Conditions in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta Using Multiple Drought Indices: A Case Study in Ca Mau Province
Globally, hydrometeorological hazards have large impacts to agriculture output, as well as
human well-being. With climate change derived increasing frequency of extreme weather conditions,
the situation has becoming more severe. This study strives to evaluate both dry and wet conditions
in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD), also known as the...
Evaluation of the Impact of Drought and Saline Water Intrusion on Rice Yields in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam
The Mekong delta is Vietnam’s premier rice growing region, forming the livelihood basis
for millions of farmers. At the same time, the region is facing various challenges, ranging from extreme
weather events, saline water intrusion, and other anthropogenic pressures. This study examines
how saline water intrusion and drought have affected rice...
Water Accounting Using Satellite Products and Water Accounting Plus Framework in a Semi-Arid Betwa River Basin, India
The emerging water crisis in India can be preempted by improving watershed management.
The data scare regions need open access satellite observations to mitigate watershed problems. The
water accounting plus (WA+) and open access earth observation datasets were applied to quantify
the beneficial and non-beneficial water consumption in the Betwa...
