Welcome to Soil & Water Conservation Engineering Department

Important Research Achievements

  • Developed a 10 m x 1.2 m rainfall simulation system along with a tilting flume and water circulation system to conduct hydrological studies under lab conditions.
  • Developed a portable rainfall simulator to conduct rainfall-runoff sediment studies under field conditions.
  • Developed hydrologic models for rainfall-runoff-sediment outflow from natural watersheds of Ramganga River catchment.
  • Assessment and monitoring of drought and wet conditions at various places in Uttarakhand State.
  • Developed simplified design procedures of soil conservation measures and structures which are effective and user friendly under field conditions.
