Water Resources

Pakistan is an arid country heavily dependent on annual glacier melts and monsoon rains. Remote Sensing provides large scale multidisciplinary information to monitor, sustainable use and management of water resources. Water resources management thus plays a pivotal role in formulating national strategy for food security. Important areas of application are;

  • Surface energy balance and evapotranspiration
  • Hydrological modeling
  • Mapping of Surface water resources and irrigation networks
  • Watershed modeling and Integrated watershed management
  • Ground water prospection
  • Wetland ecosystem modeling
  • Dam site selection
  • Soil moisture estimation
