Monitoring shoreline environment of Paradip, east coast of India using remote sensing

  title={Monitoring shoreline environment of Paradip, east coast of India using remote sensing},
  author={R. Mani Murali and Deepak Shrivastava and P. Vethamony},
  journal={Current Science},
In the present study, we used multi-temporal satellite images of Indian Remote Sensing Satellites (IRS1D and IRS P6 - Resourcesat) from 1998 to 2005 to monitor the coastal environment of Paradip, east coast of India. The resultant coastal vector maps were used to estimate the geomorphological changes and shifting of the shoreline position. This integrated study is found useful for exploring accretion and erosion processes in the region. The shoreline maps were compared with the 1973 Survey of…

Detection of decadal shoreline changes along Dhamara and Maipura coast, Odisha, India
Coastal erosion is one of the major problems of the coastal zone. The erosion is triggered by various reasons such as high wave energy, reduction of sediments, natural disasters and climate change
An Application of Remote Sensing and GIS Based Shoreline Change Studies – A Case Study in the Cuddalore District , East Coast of Tamilnadu , South India
The shoreline is one of the rapidly changing coastal landforms. Shorelines are the key element in coastal GIS and provide the most information on coastal landform dynamics. Therefore, accurate
A shoreline change analysis along the coast between Kanyakumari and Tuticorin, India, using digital shoreline analysis system
The present study implies that proper beach filling and nourishment projects should be made in the study area to save from hazards and indicates the advantage and suitability of DSAS to assess the shoreline changes compared with the traditional manual shoreline change analysis and promising its applications for coastal zone management in other regions.
Assessing the shoreline dynamics of Hatiya Island of Meghna estuary in Bangladesh using multiband satellite imageries and hydro-meteorological data
Abstract Hatiya is the largest and one of the most significant offshore islands in the Meghna river estuary. Which is very dynamic in nature as it is part of an active delta, where erosion and
Shoreline Change Monitoring in Nellore Coast at East Coast AndhraPradesh District Using Remote Sensing and GIS

The erosion – deposition of shore line is not only a natural phenomenon, but also influenced by human activities. In recent decades, these changes occur more frequently with changes in the shape of
Long-time shoreline monitoring of the vellar estuarine complex, southeast coast of India: Using multispectral satellite data
The present study was carried out to track the path of Vellar estuary over a period of 38 years (1970–2008) and also to detect the impact of tsunami on estuarine complex of the Vellar estuary. Visual


Assessment of shoreline changes in the western side of Zanzibar channel using satellite remote sensing
The present study uses a satellite remote sensing approach for assessing coastal sediment dynamics in the western side of the Zanzibar channel, Tanzania. Four Landsat images (1986, 1998, 1999 and
