Remote Sensing application in earth resources, Landslides and agriculture land use.

Ph.D. project

“Prediction and visualization of arsenic-free aquifers in deltaic systems”

In this research I will study the arsenic contamination of in the depositional environment of the river Ganges and try to find out the probable source of arsenic contamination and its movement along the bed with the help of modelling. I am going to correlate various parameters of water quality with arsenic. Remote sensing and other data implementation will be done for improve the model and accuracy of the result.

M.Tech thesis

“Landslides susceptibility analysis using R.S and GIS techniques in a part of Chamoli District Uttarakhand, India”
