Abstract Share this page

With the increasing demands for water due to increasing population, urbanization and agricultural expansion, groundwater resources are gaining much attention, particularly in the Kandi region of Jammu district, which faces acute shortages of drinking water throughout the year. Groundwater development programmes need a large volume of data from various sources. This study used integrated remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) techniques to provide an appropriate platform for convergent analysis of multidisciplinary data and decision making for artificial recharge to groundwater. Thematic maps were constructed using merged Linear Imaging Self Scanner (LISS)‐III and Panchromatic (PAN) remote sensing data and aquifer parameter thematic layers were prepared from conventional field data. The thematic layers of the aquifer parameters were integrated and a map showing the potential zones for artificial recharge to groundwater was generated. By superimposing the drainage network map over this artificial recharge zone map, and also considering the terrain conditions for artificial recharge, suitable sites for replenishing groundwater in the study area were identified.
