Geography of Water Resources

By R.K. Gurjar, B.C. Jat

Bodies of water surround the globe, yet most nations face a water shortage. In India, not only is the per capita water availability falling drastically, but the quality of available water is fast deteriorating. Over-extraction of ground water has further led to many problems. There is a pressing need to educate Indians about the importance of effective management of water resources. Geography of Water Resources meets this need. This topic has been introduced in the syllabus of universities and colleges in India, as well as all over the world. It presents comprehensive, well-illustrated, and documented accounts of the issues concerning water resources management. Various aspects of the scientific management of water resources are discussed, including: worldwide distribution, quality, irrigation methods, flooding, droughts, watershed management, traditional water harvesting techniques, water ethics, etc. The book will be of immense help to students, researchers, analysts, commentators, academicians, and policy makers.
