Abstract:

The trend analysis of various components of various water resources system like rainfall, runoff, evapotranspiration and ground water recharge will help to prepare a future plan for ground water development and management plan for the basin. It will also be helpful for agricultural as well other resources planning. The required shift in cropping pattern can also be judged. The quantity predictions can be achieved to aid managerial and policy action directed towards natural resources management. The seasonal potential evapotranspiration in the Ozat basin was found insignificantly decreasing while crop evapotranspiration significantly increasing indicating that rainfall is increasing due to climatic variability. The average monsoon rainfall of the Ozat basin is found as 730.81 mm. The area weighted rainfall and runoff are found increasing in the basin. The rainfall and runoff is found increasing insignificantly for the entire river basin. The rainfall and runoff both were found increasing respectively in 1 and 3 watersheds of the basin out of 4. However, rainfall is significantly increasing in 2 watersheds (5G1C4, 5G1C5) while runoff is significantly increasing in 1 watershed (5G1C5) only. The rainfall is observed insignificantly decreasing in 1 watershed (5G1C2). The area weighted rainfall and runoff are found increasing in the basin. The rainfall and runoff is found increasing insignificantly for the entire river basin.
