Optimization of Canal Management Based on Irrigation Performance Analysis Using Satellite Measurements
This brief discusses how remote sensing and satellite imagery were used for irrigation evaluation at the Lower Bari Doab Canal in Punjab, Pakistan. It identifies solutions to maximize the delivery of scarce water resources in irrigation systems.
The remote sensing-based decision support system provides insight into irrigation requirements and potential water distribution improvements at the at the Lower Bari Doab Canal. The study presented in the brief highlights the potential of the system as a tool for improving irrigation management, monitoring, evaluation, and productivity.
