Abstract

The Lower part of the Tapi basin is prone to flood hazards due to its geographical location. The excessive release of water from Ukai dam during rainy season results in the inundation of Lower Tapi Basin (LTB) including Surat city. The flood occurred in 2006 instead of vast property damage, animal live lost, killed 300 people. Beside rainfall intensity, high discharge from Ukai Dam and decreasing carrying capacity of Tapi River, change in land cover is also a factor causing flood situation. In this study, runoff contribution of change in land cover to flood in Lower Tapi Basin is focused. The methodology includes geospatial technology, in which of satellite images are used to develop LULC maps of LTB for years 2002 and 2016 in ArcGIS 10.1 environment. HEC-HMS software was used to generate a rainfall-runoff model of both the land covers using single hydrograph. The change in peak discharge was compared.
