Groundwater provinces of India. (Modified after CGWB 1989)
The distribution of average annual rainfall on the Indian
sub-continent is greatly variable, being maximum (~250 cm)
along the Western Ghats (coast) and the NE Himalaya while lowest
(<30 cm) is in the western part of the
country where arid conditions prevail (Fig. 20.3). .
The distribution of various groundwater provinces is also shown in
Fig. 20.3 and their main hydrogeological characteristics
including yield potential is outlined in Table 20.5.
