Geoelectrical Schlumberger Investigation for Characterizing the Hydrogeological Conditions Using GIS in Kadavanar Sub-basin, Cauvery River, Tamil Nadu, India
S .Venkateswaran,,P. Jayapal
International Journal of Innovative Technology and Exploring Engineering , 2013,
Abstract: The increasing demand for fresh water hasnecessitated the exploration for new sources of groundwater,particularly in hard rock terrain, where groundwater is a vitalsource of fresh water. A fast, cost effective and economical wayof exploration is to study and analyze geophysical resistivitysurvey data. The present study area Kadavanar sub-basin,Cauvery River, Tamil Nadu, India, is overlain by Archaeancrystalline metamorphic complex. The study area is acharacteristic region of unconfined aquifer system. The potentialfor occurrence of groundwater in the study areas was classifiedas very good, good, moderate and poor by interpreting the subsurfacegeophysical investigations, namely vertical electricalsoundings, were carried out to delineate potential water bearingzones. The studies reveal that the groundwater potential ofshallow aquifers is due to weathered zone very low resistivity andvery high thickness and the potential of deeper aquifers isdetermined by fracture zone very low resistivity and very highthickness area. By using conventional GIS method, the spatialdistribution maps for different layer (Top soil, weathered zone,first fracture zone and second fracture zone) thicknesses wereprepared. The geoelectrical approach was successfully applied inthe study area and can be therefore easily adopted for similarenvironments.
Assessment of Groundwater Quality for Irrigation Use and Evaluate the Feasibility Zones through Geospatial Technology in Lower Bhavani Sub Basin, Cauvery River, Tamil Nadu, India  [PDF]

International Journal of Innovative Technology and Exploring Engineering , 2013,
Abstract: The present work is employed in Lower Bhavani subbasin(study area 2424.19 sq.km), major portion of the study areafall in Erode District and small portion in Coimbatore District,Tamil Nadu and India. The 50 groundwater samples werecollected from during pre monsoon (May) 2011 and wereanalysed for major cations and anions EC, pH and TDS. Theirrigational parameters like; EC, Kelley’s ratio, SAR values, Mghazards,HCO3 and RSC have been worked out to know thesuitability of the groundwater for irrigational purpose. Wilcoxdiagram indicates that out of 50 samples, 33 samples belong togood to permissible category and Doneen diagram revealed that100% of the groundwater samples fall in Class I. The plotting ofSAR values in USSL diagram indicates that all the samples havelow SAR value. Out of 50 samples 41 samples in C3-S1 field. Thisimplies that no alkali hazard is anticipated to the crops. 41Location (82%) samples occurred within C3–S1 category. Thiscategory is suitable for irrigations purposes. However, theconcentration of bicarbonate was in significant amount showing54% of sites under “increasing problem” and the 44% sites under“Severe Problem” zones. Finally above said results are taken intoGIS platform. To understand the spatial distribution ofunsuitable zones, ArcGIS was employed. The present workreveals that groundwater in the Lower Bhavani sub-basin area isof good quality and is suitable for all uses including interbrainwater transfer in the region.

Abstract: From the position of an ordinary Congress volunteer K. Kamaraj, within a spanof three and half decades rose to the position of the Chief Minister of Madras from 13thApril, 1954 to 2nd October, 1963 through various phases of trials, mainly by his owndedicated selfless services to the Tamil Society and for the development of Tamil Naduand India.

Abstract: Iyothee Thass, a depressed class by birth and Buddhist by conviction , was an outstanding figure in the role to emancipate the Depressed Classes and women in Tamil Nadu. He initiated socio-cultural awakening which preceded the specular rise of the Dravidian Movement in the second decade of the Twentieth Century Tamil Nadu. An Idealogue and a cultural crusader, Iyothee Thass and a host of Depressed Class intellectuals of Tamil Nadu initiated a dozen of Tamil journals and magazines and ventilated novel ideas and their print and press activities opened a new ground in the subaltern struggle for identity, human dignity, equality, justice and above all social emancipation. Iyothee Thass and R.Srinivasan who started the journals, Tamilan and Parayan respectively heralded the 'Age of Struggle for Social Justice and Social Acceptance' in Tamil Nadu. Iyohtee Thass also spearheaded a campaign of press media for the liberation of women from the age old suppositious customs of the Hindu Society.He ran the popular Tamil Weekly, Tamilan, for years. Besides, he published scores of pamphlets and tracts by him and his associates which were widely circulated among Tamils everywhere. The articles and write- ups he contributed for Tamilan provide an idea of the astounding range of his concerns: caste hegemony, untoucbability and issues involved in census which are considered still great obstacles for the emancipation of Depressed classes and women.

Abstract: The Colonial British Administration done yeomen services in the field of education. The Christian Missionaries had taken up the issue of education as a social problem which was responsible for the backwardness of the native people of Tamil Nadu. The British Government allowed the Christian Missionaries freely into the nook and corner of India as per the Indian Council Act of 1813. The Missionaries involved in spreading Christianity with inculcating awareness of the illiteracy of the masses. The Government backed the efforts of the Missionaries to start many secondary schools in various districts of the Tamil Nadu. Many private agencies also involved in establishing secondary schools which was felt imperative necessity of the native people. As a result, Zillah, taluk and private schools emerged in number which was a great panacea to the suffering masses in many grounds.

Abstract: Thiruvalangadu is one of the thirty eight Saivite sthalams in Tamil Nadu. It is also called as Vadavanamand Vata Aranyam which is at a distance of sixty four kilometres from Chennai in the Chennai-Tiruvallore -Arakkonam road, or by train but the alighting point is about five kilometers from the village passenger trains andsuburban trains half at this station bearing the name of the village1. The name 'Thiruvalangadu' might perhaps bederived from the words 'Alam' and 'Kadu' former in Tamil means 'Banyan tree' while the latter word refers to 'forest'and as it was customary to affix Thiru especially to a religious centre, 'Thiru' was affixed to Thiruvalangadu2. . Thisplace was therefore, a forest of banyan trees.
