Abstract

Spatial Distribution Analysis of Groundwater Quality Index Using GIS: A Case Study ofm Ranchi Municipal Corporation(RMC) Area

The exploration, exploitation, and unscientific management of groundwater resources in the capital of Jharkhand (Ranchi) have posed a serious threat of reduction not only in quantity but also deterioration in quality. The aim of the present study is to provide an overview of current status of groundwater quality and
to analyse spatial distribution of groundwater quality in Ranchi Municipal Corporation (RMC) area for the risk assessment.

Keywords: Groundwater quality index; Geostatistics; GIS
