The Gomti River in Lucknow City, India, was an important source of water for the
different uses few decades ago. However, because of the rapid global changes,
current status of the river is very critical from environmental, aesthetic and
commercial usage point of view. Henceforth, this research work focused on
assessing the current as well as...

Generally, the characterization of land surface roughness is obtained from the analysis of height variations observed along transects (e.g., root mean square (RMS) height, correlation length, and autocorrelation function). These surface roughness measurements are then used as inputs for surface dynamics modeling, e.g., for soil erosion modeling...

Presentation
Inception Workshop of the Project on Low Carbon and Resilient Urban Food Systems

This presentation outlines the application of the ecological debt index (EDI) concept to assess urban households from the point of urban food systems. The concept is being developed for application in a UNEP 10FYP project being implemented in India in collaboration with the Center for Sustainable Agriculture (CSA). The EDI enables users to assess...

In this chapter we first examined the impacts of changes in the irrigated and rain fed crops yields induced by climate change on the demand for water. We looked at the impacts of climate change on crop yields and found they vary across crops and agro ecological zones. In this experiment, we showed that, if water for irrigation is not limited...

This paper presents a collective sensing approach that integrates imperfect Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) obtained through Citizen Science (CS) tree mapping projects with very high resolution (VHR) optical remotely sensed data for low-cost, fine-scale, and accurate mapping of trees in urban orchards. To this end, an individual tree crown...
