Abstract: Changes in land use and land cover (LULC) in the drainage basin of Lake Malawi over the period 1982-2005 were estimated from satellite imagery, and possible relationships were evaluated among the four major land-cover classes: cropland, forest, water, and savanna/shrub/woodland. AVHRR and MODIS sensors gave different values of areal extent of the four classes, limiting the feasibility of establishing consistent temporal trends over the entire period of the study, but forest land showed the least change among three land cover types, and extent of water bodies remained virtually unaltered over the period. AVHRR results show that cropland was mainly derived from savanna/shrub/woodland, which declined by almost 90% over the period 1982-1995.

Abstract: In this study, the land use change in a large basin of Calabria region (southern Italy) subjected to extensive reforestation at the end of the ’ 50 has been carefully reconstructed and compared with the current situation. The runoff capacity of the basin was estimated using data available for the temporal periods before and after the reforestation interventions. The results show that the surface of the basin interested by former reforestation activities did not affect the runoff, probably due to a trade-off between the effects of reforestation and a concurrent increase in urbanized and degraded areas. Indeed, the hydrological response is linked to structural complexity of reforested areas, currently at an early stage of development that can be further promoted through forest management activities.

Abstract: and use program is a concrete measure adopted by man to deal with comprehensive Land system. Analyses of present situation of Land use and its potential, and water-Land resources balance demonstrate that the land use in Tarim Drainage Basin is unreasonable, potential of land exploitation is great, water-land resources are imbalance,and water is a key factor restricting the exploitation and utilization of land resources. It is therefore imperative to develop water-saving agriculture. The future land demands in the drainage basin will be increased with the increase of population, socio--economic development and petroleum resourcesexploitation. planning scheme for land use must be formulated on the basis of overall balance of total supply and demand.

Abstract: The aim of the study was to investigate the morphometric characteristics of Obibia drainage basin which is wholly located within the Awka Capital territory of Anambra State, Nigeria. The basin was delineated with conventional method from topographic map (Udi SW) on the scale of 1:50,000 published by Federal Survey office. Field survey was conducted for 9 months between April and December 2015 and data were obtained on linear, areal and relief aspects of the basin to ascertain the morphometric characteristics of the basin. Principal Component Analysis (PCA) reduced our 19 variables into 5 while Principal Component Regression (PCR) was employed to reveal the relative contributions of morphometric variables. Result shows a bifurcation Ratio R (Rb) of 3.00 around the month of the river basin indicating higher risk of flooding. The relationship between mean stream length and stream order shows that order 2 drifts too far away from straight line on plotted graph suggesting some structural imbalances. The study recommends proper urban land use planning within the basin that would preserve the natural condition of the basin.

Abstract: Being a the climatic element which, together with the air temperature, leaves its mark on the general geographic landscape, atmospheric precipitation have a great practical importance in various economic sectors such as agriculture,silviculture, transportation, construction, tourism, land planning and management etc. Large quantities of precipitation fallen in small intervals of time are often the cause of overflows, floods, excess of moisture in lowlands, erosion acceleration of the sloping agricultural lands, destruction of homes and elements of infrastructure, wild and domestic animals victims and human casualties. The paper is based on data relating to atmospheric precipitation, measured at the six weather stations located in the Barlad drainage basin.

Abstract: Soil conservation and control of erosion is a basic problem in all countries. The goal of this research is to estimate erosion and sediment yield in Ekbatan Dam drainage basin by Erosion Potential Method (EPM), using Geographic Information System (GIS). The basin is located in Hamedan Province, west of Iran, in a cold and semi- arid region, with an average annual rainfall of 334mm. The study area is about 218 km2 and is divided into 8 sub- basins. Sub- basins 1 and 6 are the largest (49.14 km2), and smallest (9.92km2), respectively. Elevation ranges between 1960 to 3580 m. The litho-units include schist, granite, hornfels, limestone, sandstone, (Pre- Jurassic to Neogene in age), conglomerate, and recent alluvium. Most sediment in the basin is generated from erosion of schist. The main factors in the EPM (slope average percent, erosion, rock and soil erosion and land- use) were evaluated using GIS software. Data layers used in this study were created from topographic, homorain, homotemp, geology, lithology maps, landsat TM digital images, and field observations. According to calculated results, the coefficient of erosion and sediment yield (z) for this basin fall into moderate and heavy erosion classes. For avoiding soil erosion in this basin, therefore, soil conservation operations should be performed.

Integrated Management of Water Resources and Land Use in Urban- Metropolitan Basins: Flood Control in the Igua u-Sarapuí River Basin (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil)
Resources and Environment , 2012, DOI: 10.5923/j.re.20120202.09
Abstract: This research concerns the integration of urban land use planning to water resources management, focusing on flood control. A case study regarding the Igua u-Sarapuí River Basin, located in the western portion of the Guanabara Bay Basin, which lies in the Metropolitan Region of Rio de Janeiro is discussed. This is one of the most critical areas in the state regarding urban flooding. This region is densely occupied and presents great urban and industrial development areas, as well as wide rural zones in an urbanising process, and reminiscent areas of natural vegetation on the upstream reaches of the basin. This case study intends to illustrate and to show how complex the interaction of urban drainage problems and the city growth can be in a context of an unplanned and non-integrated reality. In this region, urban expansion dynamics is, in general, marked by irregular occupation, in terms of land tenure and urban regularisation, and lack of sanitation. This creates a cycle difficult to treat: the urbanization without proper control compromises the drainage system which, in turn, fails and affects the urban environment, degrading it and creating situations of risk and losses. This paper aims at elucidating the challenges and perspectives to water resources management in densely urbanized basins in Brazil.

Abstract: The water supply of the localities in the Ili ua drainage basin. The way in which the water is supplied to a locality represents a relevant indicator in assessing the quality of life and the economic development. The existence of a well developed water supply system is all the more necessary as the spatial-temporal distribution of the rainfall undergoes an enhancement of variation together with the increase of water requirement.The 27 localities located in the drainage basin, with a population of more than 13,000 inhabitants, engaged mostly in primary activities need a water supply system with a quality source and a sufficient flow to induce an actual immunity in the context of present climate changes. In order to achieve this goal, one has to consider calculating the water requirement, analyzing the territory natural component in order to make possible the identification of the water supply sources and of the water uses territorial distribution.

Abstract: Most African river basins lack flow data, a condition which has affected river basin operations. Flood is a common occurrence on the Sokoto basin but poor data base has affected various research efforts and flood mitigation attempts in the basin. This present study will study basin variables using a GIS approach with a few to gaining insights to the flood potentials of Sokoto basin. Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (SRTM) image covering 5o-7o E and 12 o to 14oN was used in this study. The analysis was carried out using the Integrated Land and Water Information System (ILWIS) and ArcGIS environments. Sinks were removed from the STRM, and the flow direction map was generated as an input for drainage extraction, river ordering and basin catchment extraction. Drainage network overlay was carried out on the generated hill-shade map and on a portion of SPOT image covering the Upper Sokoto catchment for visual analysis. Altogether, 44 basin variables were generated with a view to appraising flood and water resource management in the basin. The results showed that the Upper Sokoto basin is an alluvial catchment; located in a relatively low lying area where high level of deposition is experienced. It is sinuous in nature, circular in shape and compact. These characteristics coupled with the relatively high volume of precipitated water of 14,511,439,620 m3/year are indications that the basin has high flood potential. The paper recommends construction of levees to protect farmlands, efficient reservoir operation and sustainable watershed management for the purpose of environmental management in the Sokoto basin.
