The spatio-temporal evolution of irrigation in the Georgia coastal plain : empirical and modeled effects on the hydroclimate by Marcus De'Andre Williams( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Agricultural landscapes comprise up to 40% of global land cover and population growth increases the need to grow current levels of agriculture. Irrigated agriculture increased globally during the last century as a result of improved technology. The impacts of this rapid expansion have been the focal point of many studies, but very few have focused on the southeastern United States. Irrigation impacts the hydrologic cycle and surface energy budget through increased evapotranspiration as a result of increased surface moisture. Georgia has experienced rapid growth in irrigated area since the early 1970s with most irrigated lands being converted from previously un-irrigated agriculture. The overarching goal of this research addresses irrigation-hydroclimate relationships in the southeastern United States, with a primary focus on southwest Georgia. While there is regional dependence on the beneficial effects of increased irrigation to improve agricultural yield, there is limited refereed literature on the influence of expansion of irrigation on Georgia's climate. The analysis conducted uses remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) technologies to quantify past and current spatio-temporal trends in irrigated acreage in Georgia. The identification of these trends allows for the assessment of the impacts of irrigation on local to regional hydroclimate through observation and modeling analysis
