Surplus water entering the sea will become meaningful resource.

Until five years ago, Abdul Razzak and his band of sand miners had it easy.

Remotely sensed data can provide useful information in understanding the distribution of groundwater, an important source of water supply throughout the world. In the present study, the modern geomatic technologies, namely remote sensing and GIS were used in the identification of groundwater potential zones in the Kanyakumari and Nambiyar basins of Tamil Nadu in India.

The present study deals with statistical analysis of physico-chemical parameters of ground water quality in Nambiyar river basin. The quality of ground water has been assessed by using correlation coefficient (r) between all parameters. A systematic correlation and regression study showed linear relationship among different water quality parameters.
