Sakthivadivel, R.; Amarasinghe, U. A.; Thiruvengadachari, S. 2001. Using remote sensing techniques to evaluate lining efficacy of watercourses. Colombo, Sri Lanka: IWMI. v, 29p. (IWMI Research Report 46) [doi: 10.3910/2009.051]



Studies the low-cost alternative strategy of selective lining of watercourses to reduce seepage and increase irrigated areas in the Indian subcontinent. Satellite remote-sensing (SRS) is seen as a cost-effective evaluation tool in view of its large area of synoptic and repetitive coverage.
