Title: Soil erosion in Kashmir valley with special reference to Liddar basin.
Author: Syed, Shakeel Ahmad (Scholar); Kanth, Tasawoor Ahmad (Guide)
Abstract: Kashmir valley being hilly and mountainous in its physiographic disposition is highly vulnerable to soil erosion hazards. The problem is encountered both on agricultural as well as non agricultural lands. The large scale soil erosion in Kashmir valley is mainly the outcome of interaction of various factors viz. Climate, relief, erodibility, deforestation and landuse practices. It has been amply demonstrated by the present study that soil erosion is quite rampant in Kashmir valley in general and Liddar basin in particular. Slopes of mountains are bare, degraded and facing acute degradation problems. Sheet and gulling have become regular features. In the present study the analysis of Landuse/Landcover status of Liddar basin has revealed that there has been a considerable change in the forestry, agriculture and other classes etc within a limited period of 25 years from 1974-75 to 2001. Thus in the light of the gravity of this problem. The present study comes up with some factual data which is expected to provide an inventory in the identification of the priority areas of the basin and is also expected to be quite useful for devising strategies for implementation of conservation and management plans for the study area in particular and Kashmir valley in general.
