Dr D C Jhariya, Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Geology, National Institute of Technology (NIT) Raipur has presented a research paper entitled “Demarcation of Groundwater Potential Recharge Zone Using GIS-based MIF and Electrical Resistivity Technique in Raipur City, Chhattisgarh” in an Conference on Recent Trends in Geospatial Technology: Issues & Challenges (RTGTIC-2021) which was held at Central University of Jharkhand, Ranchi, India on 19-20 March, 2021. Based on effective presentation and excellent works, research paper presented by Dr D C Jhariya was adjudged as the best Paper Presentation of the conference.
In this research work Dr Jhariya has used Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS) techniques and Electrical Resistivity Techniques to assess groundwater potential recharge zone of the Raipur city, Chhattisgarh, India. His research will provide valuable information relating to the characterization of artificial recharge zone which is useful for the formulation of groundwater development and management plan for Raipur city, Chhattisgarh, and other area.
Participants from different institution like IITs, NITs, CSIR Labs, Central Universities, State Universities etc. participated in this conference and presented their research work. Dr Jhariya’s paper presentation was recognized as outstanding presentation among all and awarded “Best Paper Award in the RTGTIC-2021″.
