The over-exploitation of significant earth assets resembling land and water has ended in a few environment-related difficulties across the world. whilst, land-use switch attributable to quite a few human actions has ended in extinction of many plant and animal habitats and species. during this context, the relevance of biodiversity for human survival is turning into an important overseas political factor as clinical proof builds at the worldwide health and wellbeing implications of biodiversity loss. those concerns are heavily associated with the difficulty of weather switch, as the various overall healthiness hazards as a result of weather swap are linked to fast degradation of biodiversity. This current paintings makes a speciality of holistic traditional resource-based spatio-temporal making plans, improvement, and administration and considers them as necessary to shop the degraded environment for sustainable source administration. Contributions are compiled in volumes: 1. weather switch and Biodiversity and a pair of. panorama Ecology and Water administration. Geoinformatics in addition to its instruments akin to distant sensing and geographical info structures (GIS) were utilized in assessing the result of numerous environmental difficulties either actual and social. the amount might be necessary for geographers, geoscientists, hydrologists, panorama ecologists, environmentalists, engineers, planners and coverage makers.

Homogeneity test was applied on the series with Standard Normal Homogeneity Test (SNHT) at the 5 % significance level (Alexandersson 1986) and the observed series was found to be homogenous (Khaliq and Ouarda 2007). Serial correlation and pre-whitening method was applied on the series to remove the effect of correlation on MK Test (Storch 1993). MK test was then applied on the pre-whitened rainfall series (Mann 1945; Kendall 1975) with the Theil–Sen’s estimator (Theil 1950; Sen 1968) to get the trend and magnitude of rainfall.

The Lag-1 serial correlation was calculated to observe the presence of any positive or negative correlation and pre-whitening was applied to eliminate the effect. 228). The rate of change for 141 years for each month and the level of significance is given in Fig. 2. Positive and negative trends in the series were calculated from the MK test and some significant values were observed in different regions.
