Hydrogeological studies of springs in the catchment of the Gaula River, Kumaun Lesser Himalaya, India



Hydrogeological studies of springs in the catchment of the Gaula River, Kumaun Lesser Himalaya, India



Mountain Research and Development 11(3): 239-258



The hydrological regime of the catchment area of Lesser Himalayan Gaula River in south-central Kumaun, India, is affected by deforestation. This has caused accelerated erosion, particularly in areas of intense faulting and thrusting, and where human activities have induced drastic changes in the land-use pattern. Responses include the drying up of some springs and the reduced discharge of others. This has occurred in over 40% of the villages of the catchment area.
