1. “Application of RS and GIS for Morphometric and Land Resource Analysis” by Kundu Ramprasad

“Application of RS and GIS for Morphometric and Land Resource Analysis” Book Review: This book serves the instructors, research scholars and students of geomorphology. This book provides the detailed morphometric characteristics. It presents the land resource analysis technique of a watershed. It uses the remote sensing and GIS which also help in recognising the problem areas and their probable solutions. This study discusses how to characterize a watershed and prioritize it for conservation and management of land resources. This is done by remote sensing and GIS techniques. It provides the analysis carried out to prepare an Erosion Intensity Unit (EIU) map. This is needed for calculating the sediment yield indices.

2. “Estimation of Rainfall Generated Runoff Using RS and GIS” by Gajbhiye Sarita
3. “Application of GIS, RS and GPS for Urban Growth Analysis” by Ajay Babu
4. “Application of RS and GIS in Water Resources Management” by Patel Dhruvesh

“Application of RS and GIS in Water Resources Management” Book Review: This book provides remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) techniques. These techniques are used as tools in defining the basin geometry. This book uses integrated results of morphometric analysis (MA). It also uses SYI model, USLE model to prioritize watersheds and to locate sites for water harvesting structures. These are used in Savli and Kalol taluka, Gujarat, India are identified and considered for the study purpose. It explains the dependence of water harvesting structure on natural drainage on soil erosion intensity and ranks of micro- watersheds.

5. “A Geographical analysis of flash floods in Indian Himalaya Region: A case study of River Satluj basin using GIS and RS applications, Himachal Pradesh, India” by Rohit Chauhan and Anurag Sharma

“A Geographical analysis of flash floods in Indian Himalaya Region: A case study of River Satluj basin using GIS and RS applications, Himachal Pradesh, India” Book Review: This book is connected with occurrences of flash floods in River Satluj flowing within Himachal Pradesh. It helps in recognition of vulnerable areas and assessment of their damages. This book analyzes the most advanced and essential fields of geography, known as Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS). This book focuses on making use of different applications of GIS and remote sensing. This helps in studying and understanding flash floods occurring in River Satluj. This describes systematic analysis accompanied by copious diagrams, maps, tables and charts.

6. “Remote Sensing and GIS Integration: Theories, Methods, and Applications: Theory, Methods, and Applications (Electronics)” by Qihao Weng

“Remote Sensing and GIS Integration: Theories, Methods, and Applications: Theory, Methods, and Applications (Electronics)” Book Review: This book starts with theoretical discussions. These discussions are succeeded by a series of application areas in urban studies. It is also followed by environmental studies. These studies employ the integration of remote sensing and GIS. Every area of application is examined through analysis of state-of-the-art methods. It also provides the elaborate presentations of one or more case studies.

7. “An Introduction to Contemporary Remote Sensing (Electronics)” by Qihao Weng

“An Introduction to Contemporary Remote Sensing (Electronics)” Book Review: This book discusses the latest developments in remote sensing and imaging science. It includes the basic principles and explains essential technologies. These technologies involve aerial photography, radar, Lidar (light detection and ranging), photogrammetry. It also has satellites, thermal radiation, and much more. In this book full-color images are provided to demonstrate the concepts presented. It also includes the review questions at the end of each chapter. This book involves the solid foundation in remote sensing required for developing diverse geospatial applications.

8. “GIS and RS Based Fertilizer Suitability Mapping for Wheat, Ethiopia” by Banja Tadesse Hunduma
9. “Diagnosing Irrigation Water Resources with Multi-Sensor RS and GIS” by Pawan Kumar Sen

“Diagnosing Irrigation Water Resources with Multi-Sensor RS and GIS” Book Review: The study has developed a water balance model of the Roxo catchment (Portugal). This is done by using Thornthwaite-Mather method based on the recent climatological data (2001- 2003). This is to assess available water for irrigation. This book discusses the depleted fraction during May-September, which is the core irrigation season. It contains several irrigation performance indicators. It also explains that none of the major crops in the Roxo irrigation command area has a sufficient supply of water. This book applies the Surface Energy Balance Algorithm for Land (SEBAL) to calculate actual evapotranspiration.

10. “Groundwater Modeling: RS and GIS Perspective” by Nooruddin Shaikh and Rukhsana

“Groundwater Modeling: RS and GIS Perspective” Book Review: This book helps to select suitable locations for groundwater exploration in hard rock areas. This is done by using an integrated approach of remote sensing & GIS techniques. It evaluates the groundwater potentiality of the area. The assessment is done through integration of the geophysical data with IRS- 1D LISS-III image. The multiple geo datasets have been carried out using a geographic information system for mapping lithology, structures. It also uses geomorphology, soils, landuse/landcover, slope and drainage pattern. It is also used in selecting ground water prospect zones for further development of ground.
