ABSTRACT
Remote sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) is a rapid and cost effective techniques, it provides information of large and inaccessible area within short span for assessing, monitoring and management of groundwater resources. The interpretation of the remote sensing data with conventional data and sufficient ground truth information makes possible to identify and delineate the various ground features such as geological structures, geomorphological features and their characters that may cater direct or indirect presence of ground and surface water. The present study area is an attempt to delineate the groundwater potential zones in and around Gola block of Ramgargh district, Jharkhand, India, using integrated approach of Remote Sensing and GIS techniques. The groundwater prospect map is a systematic effort and has been prepared considering major controlling factors, such as geology, geomorphology, drainage pattern, drainage density, lineaments, slopes etc. which influence the occurrence, movement, yield and quality of groundwater. The map presents hydrogeomorphological aspect, which are essential for planning, development, management and extraction of groundwater. The present information depicted is very useful for planner and local authority in respect of site selection of well types, depth of well, water quality, success rate of wells and as well as groundwater development and management.
