The spatial and temporal variations in the hydrochemistry of the Sutlej river in the Indian Punjab were studied based on water quality parameters analysed during pre- and post-monsoon seasons of the years 2017 and 2018. The grab water samples were collected from the river using stratified random sampling and analysed for pH, electrical conductivity (EC), carbonate (CO3−2), bicarbonate (HCO3−), chloride (Cl−), nitrate (NO3−), total hardness, calcium (Ca+2), sodium (Na+) and potassium (K+) using s...

The changes in climatic variables can significantly alter the hydrologic cycle and groundwater recharge which controls waterlogging. The effect of spatio-temporal variations in temperature, rainfall, and elevation on waterlogging in south-western Punjab (India) was studied using satellite remote sensing. Three-season (pre-monsoon, monsoon, and post-monsoon) Landsat satellite data of the years 2003, 2007, 2013, and 2019 were used to study the spatio-temporal extent of waterlogging. Modified Norma...

We collected water samples from contaminated Buddha Nullah drain in Ludhiana district of Punjab (India) during pre- and post-monsoon seasons of the year 2017 and 2018. The soil and plant (wheat and rice) samples were also taken from fields cultivated near the water sampling sites. The drain is mainly contaminated by discharge of industrial and urban effluents from the surrounding areas and its confluence with Sutlej River (a tributary of the Indus River). Water samples were analysed for nine met...

Spatial patterns of land surface temperature (LST), surface urban heat island (SUHI), surface urban cold island (SUCI), and their seasonal variations during January (winter) and September (summer) were analyzed over the three cities of Indian Punjab (Balachaur, Ludhiana and Bathinda) using Landsat 5, 7 and 8 satellite data of the years 1991, 2001, 2011, and 2018. Urban hot spots and Urban Thermal Field Variance Index (UTFVI) were used to measure the ecological environment of these cities. Land s...

Abstract Copper (Cu) is an essential element for humans and plants when present in lesser amount, while in excessive amounts it exerts detrimental effects. There subsists a narrow difference amid the indispensible, positive and detrimental concentration of Cu in living system, which substantially alters with Cu speciation, and form of living organisms. Consequently, it is vital to monitor its bioavailability, speciation, exposure levels and routes in the living organisms. The ingestion of Cu-lac...

Abstract We assessed the phytoavailability of heavy metals in wheat and rice grown on soils along flood plains of Sutlej river and its effects on human health. Surface soil samples along with wheat (pre-monsoon season) and rice (post-monsoon season) grain samples were collected during the years 2017 and 2018. Soil samples were analysed for total and DTPA-extractable metals and, wheat and rice grains samples for total metals. There were no significant (p

Abstract The Sutlej river in Indian Punjab is getting contaminated by industrial waste, sewage, and agricultural runoff. Most of the previous studies on metal contamination of water are mainly confined to the small stretch of river. Therefore, a systematic study was carried out to assess spatial and temporal variability of metal contamination in water from the entry point of Sutlej River in Indian Punjab to its tail end when it leaves the country. The likelihood of cancer risk was also estimated...

AbstractLand surface temperature (LST) is an important indicator of the earth’s environmental analysis which is significantly affected by changes in land use/land cover (LULC). The Landsat 5, 7 and 8 satellite data of January and September of the years 1991, 2001, 2011 and 2016 was used to study the impact of LULC changes on LST and its effect on crop yield (rice and wheat) in SBS Nagar, Ludhiana and Bathinda districts representing three different agro-climatic zones of Punjab (India). The Lands...
