Dr. Sri Ranjan works in the area of Soil and Water Engineering which covers irrigation, drainage, remediation of contaminated soils and groundwater, instrumentation in soil and water monitoring. Most research projects are conducted in the field with instrumentation fabricated in the laboratory.

Laboratory experiments in the area of electrokinetic/bioremediation have been conducted in fully instrumented laboratory setup to assess the efficiency of different soil remediation protocols.

Instrumentation required for assessing the impact of irrigation/drainage on plant growth and yield is available. New irrigation methods have been developed and tested.

Lab equipment available:

  • Rhizotron for measuring water and nutrient status within the root zone.
  • Permeameters, suction cup lysimeters
  • Electrical conductivity meters
  • Electromagnetic field survey instruments
  • Water flow and level sensors
  • TDR and miniprobes
