    remote sensing applications to investigate soil properties in arid and semi-arid regions. Because of unique ecosystem of arid and semi-arid regions, there are a lot of constraints that each of them is an important issue when we are going to use remote sensing data to study them. 2. Application of Remote Sensing to Study Arid and Semi-Arid SoilsCited by: 2. The use of non-conventional water resources, e.g. rainwater harvesting (RWH), can overcome the water shortages in Iraq.

      The Ikkour watershed located in the Middle Atlas Mountain (Morocco) has been a subject of serious soil erosion problems. This study aimed to assess the soil erosion susceptibility in this mountainous watershed using Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) and spectral indices integrated with Geographic Information System (GIS) environment. The USLE model required the integration of Cited by: 8.   Thus, with the understanding of these factors, sound decisions can be arrived at that will ensure the sustainable use of natural resources to meet the needs of the present generation as well as future generations.

    Floods are one of the most common hazards in the world, affecting people’s lives and livelihoods. Flood hazard mapping and flood shelters suitability analysis are vital elements in appropriate land use planning for flood-prone areas. This paper describes application of Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in identifying flood hazard zones and flood shelters and are. country. Remote sensing and Geographic information system used to analyze and visualize agricultural environments has proved to be very beneficial to farming community as well as industry. In this paper I tried to overview application of remote sensing and geographic information system in agriculture and natural resource management.

Leblanc M () The use of remote sensing and GIS for water resources management of large semi-arid regions: a case study of the Lake Chad Basin, Africa. PhD Thesis, School of Technology, University of Glamorgan, UK and Cited by: This project investigates applications of GIS and remote sensing to advance the hydrological understanding and improve the management of the water resources in large semi-arid regions.

In the Lake Chad Basin, Africa, it is demonstrated how remotely sensed data can contribute significantly to a groundwater problem, something which historically Cited by: The use of remote sensing and GIS for water resources management of large semi-arid regions (a case study of the lake Chad basin, Africa) By Marc LEBLANC, Moumtaz RAZACK and Linus MOFOR.

Abstract. POITIERS-BU Sciences () / SudocSudocFranceUnited KingdomFRGAuthor: Marc LEBLANC, Moumtaz RAZACK and Linus MOFOR. An effective management of agriculture in Africa requires deep knowledge as science plays a key role in understanding its dynamics. Remote sensing techniques provide recurrent information on vegetation cover and water resources management in various spatial and temporal resolutions and represent therefore a valuable source of data and information.

Recent advancements in the field of remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) have made it possible to conduct large-scale water remediation studies. Using improved spectral and spatial Cited by: 4. Remote Sensing and GIS Applications in Water Resources Management information even in the m onsoon periods and for high altitude regions with persistent clouds.

In arid lands the exploration and monitoring of water resources is a prerequisite for water accessibility, rational use and management. To investigate large arid areas for water, conventional land-based techniques have to be supplemented using satellite and airborne remote sensors.

The use of GIS and remote sensing in water resource planning issues has the potential to change the field, as it can allow for detailed, accurate, and quick analysis of topics that might otherwise have taken a number of times longer. The cost of these operations can also be greatly Size: KB. Remote Sensing Use of aerial photography and/or satellite imagery to assess water resources Allows rapid assessment of large areas, and selection of subsets for detailed analyses Water has distinctive spectral properties; water absorbs radiation –in infrared imagery, water appears black Water quality can also be picked up from remote.

The use of remote sensing and GIS in water monitoring and management has been long recognized. This paper however discusses the application of remote sensing and GIS specifically in monitoring water quality parameter such as suspended matter, phytoplankton, turbidity, and dissolved organic matter.

In fact the capability of this. Water resource management is an apt consideration for development sustained in an area. In the context of computer-aided analysis for resource management remote sensing technique with GIS can be by: Pressures on water resources and disasters are rising primarily due to unequal distribution, urbanization, extreme and frequent drought and flooding, pollution, deforestation, and also partly due to poor knowledge about the distribution of water recourses and poor management of water resources and usage.

Remote sensing provides critical data sources for mapping water resources and changes, while GIS provides the best tool for water resource and flood risk management. Remote sensing has emerged as a major tool in studying and analyzing the complex water resource systems. With the advent of earth observation satellites, better understanding of the land surface.

Padmavathy et al., ,(2) have used. To train the next generation of water resource scientists, engineers, and policy analysts to sustain the continued evolution and appropriate use of GIS-based water resource applications. These challenges are substantial and a range of solutions will be required because of the dramatic change in watershed management that has occurred during the past years.

With the introduction of the earth observing satellites, remote sensing has become an important tool in analyzing the Earth’s surface characteristics, and hence in supplying valuable information necessary for the hydrologic analysis.
