SBL has trained officers from soil conservation, agriculture, and ground water departments and scholars from cochin University of Science and Technology on hydro geological mapping and water quality modeling through remote sensing and GIS techniques. SBL’s has developed this capability in house and can model water quality and hydro geological set up in 2D as well as in 3D environment.
Venugopalan Nair, Senior Manager, SBL has delivered a lecture on “Remote sensing and GIS in hydrogeological mapping and water quality modeling” for a training course on sustainable development and management of ground water resources, conducted by Central Ground Water Board, Rajiv Gandhi National Ground Water Training and Research Institute, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, Ministry of water Resources, Government of India
In the lecture, Mr.Nair has explained the basics of remote sensing technology to participants from agricultural, soil conservation, Cochin University of Science and Technology, and many other departments constantly works for sustainable development. The presentation explained how this useful technology and implement in agriculture, land resource utilization, water conservation and ground water quality modeling. The enthusiastic participants made many queries in their respective domain and updated themselves about this technology.
