Article
While studies over retreat (reduction in glacier mass and snow cover area) of the Gangotri Glacier have received worldwide attention; no research has so far been conducted to quantify the contributions of snowmelt and glacier melt to the total flow of the Bhagirathi (upper Ganga) River emanating from the Gangotri Glacier. In the present study, the...
Article
Although the Ganga is an important fluvial system of India, the isotopic investigations of its water are limited and not reported for the whole length of the river. This limits the understanding of the hydrological processes of the river whose flow characteristics have been changed considerably over the years due to changes in the climate and land...
Article
Water resources are under severe stress in the highly populated Indus River Basin due to the increased consumption of water across different sectors and climate change. Coping with these challenges, requires a clear understanding on hydrological processes and anthropogenic activities, and how these are influencing recharging and spatiotemporal avai...
Article
The spatial extent of the Snow Cover Area (SCA) of the Bhagirathi River Basin (BRB) has changed in recent decades, impacting the hydrology of the region. Previous studies examining variations in SCA in the region have yet been limited to the effects of terrain variables, namely elevation, slope and aspect, without considering the influence of clima...
Article
Full-text available
This study presents an approach for modelling and mapping fluvial flooding, considering both land use/land cover (LULC) change and climate change, and applies it to the Brahmani River Basin in eastern India. Climate change projections were obtained from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6), and their impacts on the hydrology of...
Chapter
Unpredictable climate changes and adverse effects on the planetary health due to environmental degradation have led to the rise of concerns regarding human wellness in the recent days. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is said to be originated from wildlife species and represents a significant threat to human health, social, food, and economic se...
Book
Globally, concerns for the environment and human well-being have increased as results of threats imposed by climate change and disasters, environmental degradation, pollution of natural resources, water scarcity and proliferation of slums. Finding appropriate solutions to these threats and challenges is not simple, as these are generally complex an...
Chapter
The Himalayan-Karakoram (HK) region is often referred as the ‘Water Tower of Asia’, as the melt water from the glaciers and snow cover of this mountainous region provide a continuous supply of water to the major rivers of South Asia, notably the Indus, Ganga, and Brahmaputra. Recent studies reveal that climate change has altered the accumulation of...

Full-text available
There has been an exponential growth in the number of people living in urban areas since the middle of the twentieth century, and by the end of 2018, more than half of the world population lived in cities. This rapid urbanisation has created unprecedented challenges, among which the provision of domestic water has received increasing attention. Wat...
Article
Full-text available
Intense urbanization in the Indian cities has brought about phenomenal changes in the existing landuse patterns, whereby increasing trends of surface temperature and the presence and absence of green cover and water bodies; their shape, pattern, configuration significantly modifies the thermal properties of the city. Present study comprehended how...
Article
Full-text available
Considering the hydrological and religious significance of the Ganga River and the Manasarovar Lake in India, the present study has been devised to investigate the data related to the place of origin of the Ganges and to investigate the likely connection between waters of the two systems. Satellite data was employed to develop maps and find out the...
Chapter
Water management planners face considerable uncertainty in determining water availability, as change in global climate and land use/land cover patterns have altered hydrologic conditions and led to change in the dynamics of the water cycle. Therefore, it calls for having a better understanding of hydrologic processes and surface/groundwater dynamic...
Presentation
Full-text available
It summarizes basic concepts of hydro logical cycles and challenges expected to be faced in near future in water sector.
Article
Full-text available
Oxygen (18O) and hydrogen (2H and 3H) isotopes of water along with hydrochemistry were used to identify the source of a newly emerged seepage water in the downstream of Lake Nainital, located in the Lesser Himalayan region of Uttarakhand, India. A total number of 57 samples of water from 19 different sites, in and around the seepage site, were co...
Article
Full-text available
In recent past, lake water is greatly deteriorated due to the global climate change and anthropogenic activities because they affect both quantity and quality of the available water. Lakes in mountainous regions are generally small, and therefore more sensitive to natural/human-induced perturbations. In this study, the effect of 20th century global...
Article
Full-text available
In this study, past (1970-2005) as well as future long term (2011-2099) trends in various extreme events of temperature and precipitation have been investigated over selected hydro-meteorological stations in the Sutlej river basin. The ensembles of two Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP3) models: third generation Canadian Coupled Global Cl...
Article
There is growing concern, how and to what extent future changes in climate will affect human society and natural environments. Continuous emissions of Green House Gasses (GHGs) at or above current rates will cause further warming. This, in turn, may modify global climate system during 21 st century that very likely would have larger impacts than th...
Article
Ensembles of two Global Climate Models (GCMs), CGCM3 and HadCM3, are used to project future maximum temperature (T Max), minimum temperature (T Min) and precipitation in a part of Sutlej River Basin, northwestern Himalayan region, India. Large scale atmospheric variables of CGCM3 and HadCM3 under different emission scenarios and the National Centre...
Article
The sensitivity of Sutlej river sub-basin (middle catchment) which is located in N-W Himalaya is investigated for its hydrologic response to potential changes in climate variability. The predictors of two global climate models (GCMs) that are found to perform well over Indian subcontinents are downscaled, and future time series of temperature (maxi...
Article
Full-text available
A detailed analysis of extreme temperature indices for the period of 1970-2005 is conducted over Sutlej river basin located in NorthWest Himalayan region. For this purpose, daily records of maximum and minimum temperature data were procured from Bhakara Beas Management Board, India for four stations. These stations are installed at varying height f...
Article
Full-text available
Recently, study in past trends of climate variables gained significant consideration because of its contribution in adaptions and mitigation strategies for potential future changes in climate, primarily in the area of water resource management. Future inter-annual and inter-seasonal variations in maximum and minimum temperature may bring significan...
Article
The annual and seasonal trend analysis of different surface temperature parameters (average, maximum, minimum and diurnal temperature range) has been done for historical (1971–2005) and future periods (2011–2099) in the middle catchment of Sutlej river basin, India. The future time series of temperature data has been generated through statistical d...
