Applied Morphometry and Watershed Management Using RS, GIS and Multivariate Statistics(Case Studies)
  • Description
  • E-Book
  • Author(s) Information

“Applied Morphometry and Watershed Management” book is designed to introduce the recent developments related to applied morphometric studies of drainage basins.

Applications of drainage basin morphometric analysis cover several topics of research such as:

1) Prioritization of sub-watersheds for soil and water conservation;

2) Surface water harvesting;

3) Assessment of groundwater potential and predicting of groundwater movement;

4) Geo-hazard assessment (i.e., soil erosion and sediment yield modeling, landslide susceptibility mapping; flashflood hazard and flood management;

5) The impact of Quaternary tectonics on structure and drainage network distortions.
