Abstract

The main objective of the present study is analysis of Land use/land cover change detection at the end of Thamirabarani River, Tamil Nadu, India using Remote Sensing and GIS techniques. From the land use / land cover maps of 1998,2008 and 2018, it is distinct that settlements and saltpans have considerably increased, whereas fallow land and water bodies have decreased over the period of 20 years. Crop lands and fallow lands are converted into saltpans at many places in the delta. This better understanding of this study going to helps the environment is to mitigate the river water salinization and seawater incursion in the aquifers, engineering solution such as weir construction across the Thamirabarani River has been proposed based on the landuse pattern

Keywords

Land use, Land cover, change detection, Thamirabarani, Tamil Nadu, India, Remote Sensing, GIS.
