About Division

WRS Division is determined to provide feasible solutions to the water problems by developing and applying methodologies for integrated and optimum management of water resources at basin scale. It is involve in developing and applying remote sensing and GIS tools to provide inputs for hydrological modeling, display and visualization of results. The assessment of environmental flows, understanding and assessing the possible impacts of climate change on water resources and snow/glacier/permafrost investigations and modeling studies are major areas of research for the division. Development of user-friendly software tools for analysis, management, and information dissemination pertaining to water systems along with web-based water resources information systems are the key development activities. In the recent past, the Division has taken up a number of projects in some of the above areas. The Division has a well-equipped remote sensing and GIS lab with popular software like ERDAS, Arc GIS, etc.
