|Abstract||Floods are probably the most recurring, widespread, disastrous and frequent natural hazards of the world. India is one of the worst flood-affected countries. In India the Himalayan Rivers account for maximum flood damage in the country. The problem of flood in the state of Bihar is well known and every year it becomes a recurring problem to the entire region. The plains of north Bihar are some of the most susceptible areas in India, prone to flooding. Flood forecasting & flood warning, flood hazard mapping and flood risk zoning are quite effective non-structural procedures in managing floods that decreases the risks and disasters floods may cause. In view of this an attempt has been made in the present work to simulate runoff and flood inundation for Kosi River Basin in Bihar, India. This study introduces about the parameterization of hydrologic and hydraulic modelling for simulation of runoff and flood inundated area mapping. Time series analysis of hydrological data has been done to look for the rainfall and runoff behaviour in Kosi Basin and their cross-correlation. SRTM-DEM of 90m resolution is used to generate the various maps (DEM) of Kosi Basin. Hydrological and hydraulic models HEC-HMS, HEC-RAS, SCS-CN in addition to ANN models are used for runoff and floodplain inundation modelling. Results indicated that for Kosi catchment, the empirical runoff prediction approach (ANN technique), in spite of requiring much less data, predicted daily runoff values more accurately than semi-distributed conceptual runoff prediction approach (SCS-CN method). The flood inundation simulation for the Kosi River floodplain is carried out using HEC-RAS 1-D hydrodynamic model indicates promising results. Further, linear/non- linear regression models were developed to estimate the flood inundation area provides best results.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
