Land Use and Climate Change Impact on the Streamflow of the Tamirabarani River Basin

Vignesh M. Kumar, Karuppasamy S.

Abstract


The study of water resources use to manage, assess and simulate these important natural resources. In Tamirabarani basin the land use pattern around the flood basin area and population density increased. So many area of the river is occupied by the urbanization and deforestation. The climatic conditions also varied. This various problems are affecting the surface water flow. The previous methods of surface water flow involve many manual methods and calculations. The ArcSWAT used to create the streamflow model for the changes in the land use pattern and climatic condition. ArcSWAT can be used to generate valuable information for decision making by producing maps with model output spatially overlaid on other important GIS data.  In this ArcSWAT used to develop the model for the water management using the HRU (land use, soil, and slope) units.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
