Earth Observation Applications for Water Resources Assessment and Management. (Remote sensing and GIS applications in Ground water Exploration, Rainwater Harvesting. Early warning of Natural Hazards and its relation with Water resources(Tornado, Cyclone, Earthquake, Tsunami, Snowfall, Forest Fire). Research guidance and publications in the following areas Monitoring, analyzing, and quantifying components of the water cycle Monitoring/Modeling real or near-real time surface and/or subsurface hydrological processes Analyzing interactions of land surface and atmospheric processes Investigating wetland dynamics Monitoring, forecasting and managing flooding and droughts Monitoring land use/cover change and impact on hydrological processes Determining effects of human activities on both the quantity and quality of water Developing products for use in integrated water resources management.
