Abstract: The present study investigated through mathematical modelling techniques (using Modflow) for the Bengaluru North zone. The present study carried out in Bengaluru North Taluk lies in between 12° 52’ N to 130 15’ N, 770 22’ E to 770 50’ E to assess the changes in groundwater heads due to enormous pressure on water availability (especially in groundwater) in the study area for a scientific planning and management of water resources. The present study carried out using mathematical distributed model Modflow, to set up, execute the model, requires several data of which study area boundary (.shp format), geological information to represent the geological layers in to the model using Digital Elevation Model (DEM) obtained from Cartosat I Ver. 3R (Bhuvan site), pumping wells, observation wells etc. Shows the head variation in the study area before adding pumping wells and after adding pumping wells. The final observed and simulated results of the groundwater heads in the Bengaluru North taluk under transient state condition.
Keywords: Digital Elevation Model (DEM), Modflow.
Scope of the Article: Digital System and Logic Design
