Call for Chapters for the Book, GIScience for the Sustainable Management of Water Resources.
About the book:
Water is one of the most critical resources of nature that sustains life both in the natural as well as artificial ecosystems. The uneven spatiotemporal distribution of water resources is one of the critical factors responsible for a variety of anthropogenic pressures (e.g., pollution) it is facing in the 21st century. Due to our imperfect knowledge about the distribution of water resources, it has become incumbent that spatial information techniques are used for understanding the root causes behind the degradation of our water resources. Satellite remote sensing provides essential data for mapping water resources, hydrology flux measurement, monitoring drought, and flood inundation, while the geographic information system (GIS) provides the best tools for modeling and assessing water resources for drought and flood risk management. GIS has influenced the development and implementation of a hydrological model at several different levels and has been used to address water supply, water quality, and stormwater management problems and also allows users to run more traditional lumped models more efficient and to include at least some degree of spatial effects by partitioning the entire watershed into smaller sub-watershed. “GIScience for the sustainable management of water resources” shall contain chapters from eminent researchers and experts in this field of science. The primary focus of this book is to replenish the gap in the available literature on the subject by bringing the concepts, theories, and experiences of the specialists and professionals in this field jointly. The editors aim to work hard to bring the best literature in this field in a book form for helping the students, researchers, and policymakers in developing a complete understanding of the vulnerabilities and solutions to the whole environmental system.
