A review on groundwater potential zone
Neelam Bunkar and RK Nema
Ever increasing demands of water for portable, irrigation as well as industrial sectors have created water crisis worldwide. The surface water sources are generally precarious to get their supply during monsoon seasons while in non-monsoonal periods people have to largely depend on ground water resources for their domestic and agricultural needs. Now a days, surface water resources are becoming insufficient to fulfil the water demand because utility enhanced as compare to availability. Therefore a systematic planning of groundwater improvement using modern technique is essential for the proper management and utilization of this valuable resource. Therefore there is a need for demarcation of groundwater potential zones for securing the valuable natural resource. Remote sensing and GIS is recent technology which provides multi-spectral, multi-temporal and multi-sensor data of the earth’s surface for analysis of various studies, such as groundwater study, management etc. Geoinformatics have ability to generate information in spatial and temporal domain for hydrological investigations.
