Sustainable management of water resources involves reserve upholding, proficient utilization, and eminence management. Although, activities relating to quantity appraisal and management in terms of river discharge and water resources planning are given attention at the basin level, water quality assessment are still being done at specific locations of major concern. The greatest compensation of using remote sensing data for hydrological investigations and monitoring is its ability to generate information in spatial and temporal domain, which is very crucial for booming scrutiny. The GIS technology provides suitable alternatives for proficient supervision of large and intricate databases. Information from satellites is becoming more and more important for natural resources management and research.

*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.
