Professor Saumitra Mukherjee has created an impact in interdisciplinary Earth sciences by developing the technique of Geoinformatics to solution of water resource management and natural hazard early warning system. He has contribution in Remote sensing applications in environmental earth sciences for Water resources assessment and management, Tornado, Cyclone, Earthquake, Tsunami, Snowfall, Forest Fire, disease outbreak induced by climate change etc. He has contributed and guided 18 PhD thesis in monitoring, analyzing, and quantifying components of the water cycle. Monitoring/Modeling near-real time surface and subsurface hydrological processes, analyzing interactions of land surface and atmospheric processes, investigating wetland dynamics, monitoring, forecasting and managing flooding and droughts, monitoring land use change and impact on hydrological processes Determining effects of human activities on both the quantity and quality of water developing products for use in integrated water resources management. He has more than 80 publications in peer reviewed journals and has published 11 books.
Water Resources Assessment and Management, Remote sensing and GIS applications in Ground water Exploration, Rainwater Harvesting, Early warning of Natural Hazards and its relation with Water resources(Tornado, Cyclone, Earthquake, Tsunami, Snowfall, Forest Fire).
