Descriptif
The thesis consists of seven chapters including the introduction. The first Section of the second Chapter di 3cusses the importance of agroclimatological studies in general and their applications in landuse planning in particular. This includes a review of the available literature in this field. The basic concepts, tile data used Hnd the methods employed ill this study form the second Section of this Chapter. The third Chapter d( als with thc1 different !geogmphical features of the region under study- the physiography, drainage, soil types, geomorphology and vegetation. An overview of the agro-climatology of Kerala forms the first section of the Chapter Four. Section Two of this Chapter includes tilE ! inter annual variability of the water budget elements over the State computed using the models of Ttwrnthwaite (1948) and Thornthwaite and Mather (1955). Detailed analysis of the spatio-temporal vU ! iation of the landuse patterns forms the first Section of the fiftll Chapter. The second Section focuses on the spatiotemporal variation of agricultural landuse the cropping pattern, cropping intensity and crop combination regions. The first Section of the sixth Chapter presents the delineation of the different agroclimatic zones of Kerala State based on climate, soil, physiography, geomorphology and vegetation. An optimum Icllldu ,e pattern for Kerala State is proposed in tl1e next Section This includes better crop combinations and. different cropping patterns based on the effective agricultural potentials of the areas, so that sustainable agricultural development of the region is achieved. The seventhly Chapter gives the Sumrnary of the VJork CarriE !d out baseci on the results obtained from tt1E : study. It alsc il1corporc tes HI13 cl)l1cluslons dl"awn ancl tl·1e suggestions made based on the results of the investigations.
