Abstract:

The frequencies of extreme climatic events such as floods and droughts have increased over the last few decades. Climatic variability manifests itself through variations in different parameters such as precipitation and temperatures that lead to impacts on water resources, land quality, agricultural output and quality of life. This study is carried out to analyze the effect of change in rainfall pattern and its potential risk on water resources in the state of Maharashtra, India. The Marathwada and Vidarbha regions face acute water scarcity and are highly prone to occurrence of drought events due to their topographical conditions and high socio-economic dependence on variability of climate. In order to understand the associated risk due to rainfall variability, the analysis of change in long term rainfall pattern and drought pattern is carried out for these two regions of Maharashtra. Results show that there is a decrease in precipitation trend in both these regions. Further, the precipitation trends vary drastically from district to district.
