Development of monsoon model for long range forecast rainfall explored for Anand (Gujarat-India)

Rainfall plays an important role in agricultural production. It has a profound influence on the growth, development and yields of a crop, incidence of pests and diseases, water needs and fertilizer requirements in terms of differences in nutrient mobilization due to water stresses and timeliness and effectiveness of prophylactic and cultural operations on crops. Occurrences of erratic rainfall are beyond human control....

Rainwater harvesting potential in Central Niger Delta

The three major sources of water are easily accessible in the Central Niger Delta area. The tributaries of the River Niger form a complex network of rivers, streams and lakes; groundwater is available at relatively shallow depths for abstraction; and rainfall lasts for about 9 months and varies from about 3500 to 2000 mm per annum. On relatively sophisticated water supply systems, groundwater is the most exploited but...

Messinian salinity crisis impact on the groundwater quality in Kert aquifer NE Morocco: Hydrochemical and statistical approaches

Groundwater’s studies at middle Kert aquifer in northeast of Morocco are very important due to the semi-arid character and its geological history. The region is recognized by messinian salinity crisis already 5.6 Ma. Water chemistry is mainly dominated by dissolution of evaporate rocks (Halite and Gypsum) related to outcropping and basement limits developed in Messinian age. Freshwater with total dissolved solids...
