India and its Rivers

Rivers are the lifeline of human civilization and have been supporting large human population for millennia. These water bodies are under tremendous stress to cater the increasing demand. To improve water availability it is important to study and understand various conditions effecting the water bodies. The first step in this direction is to delineate the watershed of the rivers.

Watersheds are the contributing area for the rivers and the changes occurring in the watershed could directly impact the quantity and quality of the water available for various needs. So, accurate delineation of the watershed is essential in any water resource management or research studies. Once the watershed is delineated, further studies can be carried out to understand various aspects of the waterbody.
