Drought Analysis using Geo-Spatial Techniques for Hisar District, Haryana

Darshna Vashistha | V. S. Arya


Abstract: Hisar district of Haryana has been known for water scarcity. The recent recurring water scarcity in the Hisar region has alarmed the scientific community and the policy makers alike. The absence of appropriate scientific work to analyse the recurring pattern of the drought, and the relation between meteorological, hydrological, and agricultural drought has further perplexed the decision makers. This study attempts to use the range of indices on drought monitoring and different software such as Arc-GIS 9.3, ENVI 4.4, Map Info and Erdas Imagine 9.1. This information has been tabulated and converted into pictorial representation to illustrate the intensity and frequency of the droughts. It presents an intelligent information base to assist the decision makers and mitigation analysts in taking decisions for drought mitigation action. It was concluded that blocks (Adampur, Agroha and Hisar) there was no severe drought condition in the district during the study period. It varies from block to block in each year. Meteorological drought analysis was carried out at district level and it was analyzed that in 2002, 2006 and in 2009 rainfall was deviate than normal rainfall. . It was observed that hydrological drought in pre- monsoon and post- monsoon was varying. According to hydrological drought result analysis based on IDW technique, the study area of Hisar district was facing ground water crisis. Frequency analysis of drought defined the vulnerability condition of drought in the district.
