The Northeastern Region of India is expected to be highly prone to the consequences to climate change because of its geo-ecological fragility, strategic location vis-à-vis the eastern Himalayan landscape and international borders, its trans-boundary river basins and its inherent socioeconomic instabilities. Environmental security and sustainability of the(More)
A joint U.S. Air Force/NASA blended, global snow product that utilizes Earth Observation System (EOS) Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for EOS (AMSR-E) and QuikSCAT (Quick Scatterometer) (QSCAT) data has been developed. Existing snow products derived from these sensors have been blended into a(More)
This paper presents findings of the current status of our joint U.S. Air Force – NASA work in developing a blended snow product to map global snow cover extent utilizing Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS), Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for NASA's Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) passive microwave data and QuikSCAT scatterometer data.(More)
Along with most widely practiced resources conserving technology zero-tillage wheat after rice, adoption of permanent beds for rice–wheat rotation is also gaining popularity. Since relatively a new approach particularly for dry-seeded rice and permanent beds for wheat, very little information is known about permanent beds on soil properties, nutrient (N)(More)
In the uplands of Eastern Himalayan Region (EHR) of India, dry-seeded rain-fed rice occupies considerable area. However, productivity of rice in this region is very low and is mainly due to frequent occurrence of intermittent soil moisture stress, weed infestation, and poor crop establishment. Keeping this in view, a field experiment on rain-fed(More)
Introduction of irrigated agriculture has turned some basin lands seasonally waterlogged. Seasonally waterlogged soils remain poorly understood particularly in relation to the changes in pedosphere and pedogenic pathways. Present investigation evaluated changes in the pedosphere and its implications in pedogenic pathways of these seasonal waterlogged soils.(More)
The crop and water productivity (WP) of monocropped rice in lowland of north-eastern region of India is low mainly due to cultivation of long duration variety, meagre use of fertilizer and manure, and inefficient water management, which needs to be improved for sustaining food security. Raised and sunken bed (RSB) land configuration (removing the surface(More)
This purpose of this paper is to show our results in developing a joint U.S. Air Force/NASA blended, global snow product, utilizing Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS), Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for NASA's Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) passive microwave data and QuikSCAT scatterometer data. These data are being blended into a(More)
Determination of the outcome of an IT project in a developing nation is often based on sectoral models and highly aggregated data. This paper offers an example of a replicable methodology to go to the grass roots—the user level—to obtain valuable insights from the individual and group data that are masked by the aggregate statistics.
