Water Balance Assessment, Rainwater Harvesting


The paper aims at defining water balance assessment and to probe the water harvesting techniques using remote sensing and GIS. The study area falls in survey of India topo sheet no 46/A/9. The satellite data from GLDAS-NASA are used for calculation of runoff. Also THORNTHWAITE-MATHER (TM) MODEL is used for calculation of soil water status through time. This model was used to calculate Potential evapotranspiration (PET), Accumulated Potential water loss (APWL),Soil Moisture (SM), Change in SM (∆ SM), Actual Evapotranspiration (AET) ,Deficit, Surplus, Storage, Runoff , Detention.
