Abstract

Abstract The spatio-temporal dynamics of irrigation in the arid landscapes of the Thar Desert has been quantified using 16 Day composite MODIS sensor derived MOD13Q time series for the year 2016-2017 for estimating the relative contribution of irrigated and rain-fed agriculture in the bi-modal crop growth cycle practiced in these areas. The documentation of the expansion of irrigation in the Thar Desert carried out using time series of mid-February MOD13Q data sets indicates a fourfold increase in the area under groundwater irrigation over the period 2001-2017. In fact over the course of this period, the area under groundwater irrigation has substantially surpassed the area under canal irrigation.
