Soil Resources Division

As part of the natural resource management, soil survey and classification with special focus on mapping activities at village, block, watershed and district level are the major thrust areas of work. The main major objective of the Division is to provide spatial data on soils based on remote sensing data in GIS environment to various Departments of the Govt. and to other projects where soil layer is required for integrated studies. The Division has been associated with National & International Organisation for generating soil maps, wasteland maps & degraded lands map for better land use planning and reclamation projects. The scientists of the Division are also involved in disseminating the information on application of remote sensing & GIS techniques through talks in various training programs and to post-graduate students of M.Sc / ph.D/M.Tech. This Division has equipped laboratories for soil analysts and water analysis to meet the requirement of various ongoing projects in the Centre.
