About this book

Language: English

Coastal delta systems are prominent land forms and vibrant ecosystems rich in water resources and biodiversities, and play a vital role in the growth and development of agriculture, irrigation, drinking water and industrial needs and provide a good base for a multitude of rural and urban populations. About 50% of the water requirements for the above sectors are being met from ground water resources. The stability of ground water resources and their environmental protection are therefore of prime concern for sustainable and economic development. The fresh ground water systems in the coastal deltas and inter-delta regions over the last three or four decades have been subjected to large scale stresses in the form of ground water withdrawals beyond their optimum limits to meet ever increasing demands in the agriculture and irrigation sectors. As a consequence there is a large scale depletion of water levels and reduction in fresh water storage potentials, causing saline water ingression inland, thereby causing a dent in the agriculture production and economic growth of the country. This situation is being further threatened by global wamring processes and tsunamic impacts. it is therefore felt necessary that an integrated and holistic approach is adopted to protect these important fresh water resources from the onslaughts of anthropogenic and natural hazards.

Ground Water Systems Analysis of Indian Coastal Deltas provides an integrated and holistic approach towards understanding, assemrnent and management of these fresh ground water resources in different delta complexes of lndia. Some of the key features of this book are:
- Geomorphic and tectonic evolution of coastal deltas
- Soil water balance studies and recharge-run off estirnations
- Assessment of fresh water resource potentials in different delta systems
- Ground water quality trends and analysis
- Saline-fresh water inter relationships and estimation of interface structures for different delta systems
- Management and optimization strategies
