  13. 13. Factors Affecting Water Movement in Soils
  14. 14. As we discuss mechanisms, remember… – Many processes occur simultaneously – Shifts can occur between processes in space and time – Antecedent wetness conditions are important – Watershed characteristic play a central role Runoff Generation
  15. 15. Horton overland flow occurs when the rainfall intensity exceeds the infiltration capacity Horton Overland Flow
  16. 16. Once thought to be the ONLY mechanism of runoff generation Became coded into hydrologic models still in use today Subsequent work showed role of partial source area where Saturation overland flow is produced Horton Overland Flow
  17. 17. If rainfall exceeds soil infiltration capacity: – Water fills surface depression then – Water spills over downslope as overland flow and – Eventually to the stream Horton Overland Flow
  18. 18. Subsurface Stormflow Lateral flow through soil above conductivity contrast. Consists of both slower matrix flow and faster macropore flow

  31. 31. Dams Dam is a solid barrier constructed at a suitable location across a river valley to store flowing water. Storage of water is utilized for following objectives:  Hydropower  Irrigation  Water for domestic consumption  For drought and flood control  Other additional utilization is to develop fisheries.
  32. 32. Structure of dam
  33. 33. Arch Dam  This type of dams are concrete dams which are curved or convex upstream in plan  This shape helps to transmits the major part of the worlds loads to the abutments  Arch dams are built across narrow deep river gorges But now in recent years they have been considered even for little wider valleys.
  34. 34.  Earth dams are trapezoidal in shape  Earth dams are constructed where the foundation rocks are weak to support  Earth dams are relatively smaller in height and broad at the base  They are mainly built with clay , sand and gravel. hence they are also known as Earth Fill dam or Rock Fill dam Earth dam
  35. 35. o Buttress Dam - Is a gravity dam reinforced by structural supports o Buttress Dam –A support that transmits a force from a roof or wall to another supporting structure Buttress Dam This type of structure can be considered even if the foundation rocks are little weaker
  36. 36. Gravity Dam These dams are heavy and massive wall-like structure of concrete in which the whole weight acts vertically downwards
  37. 37. Bhakra Dam  Bhakra dam is the highest concrete gravity dam in asia and 2nd highest in the world  This dam is present across the river Sutlej in himachal Pradesh  About construction it was started in the year 1948,completed in 1963 Details: About measurements 740 ft high from the deepest foundation as straight concrete dam being more than 3 times the height of Qutub Minar.
  38. 38. Leakages Below dams takes place generally due to the weak planes or zones occurring at the dam sites The reservoirs,which lies in the upstream side(when full),contain an enormous plenty of water due to great extent, on downward side of the dam,the water level wil be very low.due to this difference in levels,the reservoir water attempts to leak through the rocks of dam with considerable pressure and emerge in the downstream side
  39. 39. Dams are very costly projects,so their construction in seismic areas needs careful study to ensure their safety.when earth quakes occurs,a dam is subjected to two forces are due to the dam and due to reservoir water. conclusion
  40. 40. The Water Cycle
  41. 41. Water never leaves the Earth. It is constantly being cycled through the atmosphere, ocean, and land. This process, known as the water cycle, is driven by energy from the sun. The water cycle is crucial to the existence of life on our planet.
  42. 42. The Water Cycle
  43. 43. During part of the water cycle, the sun heats up liquid water and changes it to a gas by the process of evaporation. Water that evaporates from Earth’s oceans, lakes, rivers, and moist soil rises up into the atmosphere.
  44. 44. The process of evaporation from plants is called transpiration. (In other words, it’s like plants sweating.)
  45. 45. As water (in the form of gas) rises higher in the atmosphere, it starts to cool and become a liquid again. This process is called condensation. When a large amount of water vapor condenses, it results in the formation of clouds.
  46. 46. When the water in the clouds gets too heavy, the water falls back to the earth. This is called precipitation.
  47. 47. When rain falls on the land, some of the water is absorbed into the ground forming pockets of water called groundwater. Most groundwater eventually returns to the ocean. Other precipitation runs directly into streams or rivers. Water that collects in rivers, streams, and oceans is called runoff.
  48. 48. The Hydrological Cycle Higher Geography The Hydrosphere
  49. 49. The Hydrological Cycle What you need to know: Be able to draw a diagram of the hydrological cycle. Describe its main elements. Explain how balance is maintained within the system.
  50. 50. What is the Hydrological Cycle? The hydrological cycle is the system which describes the distribution and movement of water between the earth and its atmosphere. The model involves the continual circulation of water between the oceans, the atmosphere, vegetation and land.
  51. 51. The Hydrological cycle
  52. 52. Describing the Cycle: • Evaporation Solar energy powers the cycle. Heat energy from the sun causes evaporation from water surfaces (rivers, lakes and oceans) and….
  53. 53. • … transpiration from plants. Transpiration is essentially evaporation of water from plant leaves. • Evapotranspiration – water loss to the atmosphere from plants and water surfaces.
  54. 54. Condensation  The warm, moist air (containing water vapour) rises and, as it cools, condensation takes place to form clouds.
  55. 55. Advection • Wind energy may move clouds over land surfaces where …
  56. 56. Precipitation • …precipitation occurs, either as rain or snow depending on altitude.
  57. 57. • Stemflow (red arrows) – Precipitation flows down stems and branches to ground • Throughflow (yellow) Rate at which precipitation flows through branches
  58. 58. Run off / Overland flow • The rainwater flows, either over the ground (run off) into rivers and back to the ocean, or…
  59. 59. Groundwater flow • … infiltrates downwards through the soil and rocks where it is returned to the oceans through groundwater flow.
  60. 60. Groundwater flow
  61. 61. Hydrological Cycle Bingo Also called the hydrological cycle Split your page into 8 squares and write one word from the list below in the each square Condensation Ground Water Infiltration Evaporation Precipitation Percolation Run off Evapotranspiration Interception Saturation The Hydrological Cycle The water table
  62. 62. The water cycle balance  Usually the water cycle is in balance, and the amount of precipitation falling will slowly soak into the ground and eventually reach the rivers.  However, if rain falls for a long period of time or if the ground is already soaked or saturated with water then the chance of flooding is increased.
  63. 63. Under the ground
  64. 64. A closed system  The hydrological cycle is a good example of a closed system: the total amount of water is the same, with virtually no water added to or lost from the cycle.  Water just moves from one storage type to another.  Water evaporating from the oceans is balanced by water being returned through precipitation and surface run off.
  65. 65. Your Turn Write down the meaning of the following words: • Infiltrate • Groundwater flow • Surface runoff • Evapotranspiration • Closed system Use the New Higher Geography Textbook p.10 to help you. Then complete Activity 1 (a) – (c)
  66. 66. Human Inputs to the Cycle  Although this is a closed system there is a natural balance maintained between the exchange of water within the system  Human activities have the potential to lead to changes in this balance which will have knock on impacts.  For example as the earth warms due to global warming the rate of exchange in the cycle (between land and sea and atmosphere) is expected to increase.
  67. 67. Human Inputs  Some aspects of the hydrologic cycle can be utilized by humans for a direct economic benefit  Example: generation of electricity (hydroelectric power stations and reservoirs)  These are effectively huge artificial lakes and this will disrupt river hydrology (amount of water in a river)
  68. 68. Other Human Activities • Paving, compacting soils, and altering the nature of the vegetation (including deforestation) • The mining of ground water for use in agriculture and industry • Large amounts of water vapour released into the atmosphere from industrial activity • Large changes in vegetation by wildfire, logging, clearance for agriculture
  69. 69. Impacts • These human activities can lead to increase chances of flooding • Increases in soil erosion • A cooling effect on the north west of Europe (climate change) • Possible higher precipitation levels in the Arctic but less in the Tropics

  80. 80. Design intensity(I) = 2Iᶟ/1+Tc Where Tc = 0.01947×{√(Lᶟ/H)} : · ⁷⁷ = 0.01947 × {√(800ᶟ/50)} : · ⁷⁷ = 9.73min = 0.162hrs Iᶟ = 60 mm/hr from rainfall intensity map for16° latitude &76 ° longitude for 25 years R.I.

  105. 105. Bunding  It is a soil conservation measure , used for retaining the water , creating obstruction and thus to control erosion. Bunds are embankment type structures, constructed across the slope. By bunding practice entire area is divided into several small parts, there by effective slope length, thus reducing soil erosion.
  106. 106. Types of Bund: 1. CONTOUR BUND: • constructed on contour of area. • used in relatively low rainfall (<600mm/year) area for the purpose of controlling soil erosion and to store rain water. • Suitable for land having slope of 2 to 6%. • Black soil is not suitable for contour bund.

  118. 118. • Steps in design of graded bund are similar to that of contour bund.
  119. 119. Waste weir (WW) • WW(surplus weirs)or rubble/grass outlets are normally provided in valley points by using loose stones properly embedded in soil to avoid scouring and to drain the excess water accumulated against bund. • WW are constructed when catchment area is <40 hac. • For larger catchment areas, water diversion is necessary. • constructed in series from ridge to valley.

Total Length of gabion = width of nala+2m 6. Wire mesh size = 3 inch so, stones should be >3 inch size 7. Spacing for 1-3% slope = 50 m for 3-5% slope = 30 m
  126. 126. • Gabion should be constructed maximum in a 2 m box and join them, filled with stones and tie them together. • Bigger stones should be in the bottom and smaller stones (not < 3inch) at the top. • Binding should be proper.
  127. 127. Contour trenching • Contour Trench/’V’ ditches are trenches dug on contour in non-arable lands of more than 3% slope to hold run off for conservation and reducing erosion. • They are established for development of trees and grass species and are adoptable in areas with annual rainfall of up to 950 mm. • contour trenches have been used on all slopes, trenching on slopes exceeding 20% is not advisable either technically or economically.
  128. 128. Trenches are categorized in 3 types 1.Continuous trenches: Continuous contour trenches are recommended for storage of water in low rainfall relatively flat areas receiving storms of mild intensity. 2. Graded trenches These are drainage type ditches for intercepting and safe disposal of surface flow in very high rainfall areas and impermeable black soils. • The grade is given so that the intercepted runoff from the above will be carried safely at non- erosive velocity to the vertical drain without overflow.
  129. 129. 3. Staggered or interrupted trenches In high rainfall areas with highly dissected topography staggered trenches are usually adopted. Staggered trenches are of shorter lengths in a row and are arranged along the contour with inter space between them.
  130. 130. Earthen dam for water harvesting (NALABUND) Nala bund is an earthen structure constructed across the nala/gully in order to store the runoff water flowing through the nala during rainy season. Objectives: • reducing the velocity of flow, • storing the runoff and thereby allowing it to percolate into the soil profile which in turn helps to enhance the water table of the downstream area. • This structure also prevents the silt flowing down and causing the siltation of reservoirs in the downstream side, which can affect the storage capacity of the reservoir.
  131. 131. Site selection of nala bund 1.First and foremost requirement is that it should have sufficient catchment to fetch the runoff required for storage. 2. The upstream side of the location there should have enough area for water storage. 3. The nala site selected for the structure should have a relatively narrow cross section. 4. Should be located on the straight stretch of nala. 5. There should be provision for locating surplussing weir on one of the banks. 6. The nala bed should have good hard soil for proper bondage between the structure and natural soil profile. A hard rock foundation may have less bondage with the proposed structure, hence discouraged.

  133. 133. Design of nala bund 1. Top width, W = Z/5 +3 Where: W= width of crest (m), Z=Height of embankment above the stream bed(m). 2.EMBANKMENT SIDE SLOPES: The side slope of the nala bund depends primarily on stability of the material used for embankment.
  134. 134. Recommended side slopes for earthen embankment
  135. 135. 3.CORE WALL: The core wall is a centrally provided fairly impervious wall in the dam. 4. KEY TRENCH: This is a bondage/foundation component of the structure to ensure the stability for the embankment almost like foundation of a structure. 5. Spillway : This is a vent /channel provided at the full tank level in order to dispose of the excess runoff coming in. 6.FREE BOARD: Free board is the additional height of the bund provided to avoid water overtopping the embankment during unexpected flow of runoff 7.REVETMENT (wave protection): Since this an earthen structure and it will be coming in contact with the water in the upstream side of the dam, in order to with stand against the wave action of storage .
