Project Description

Landsat ETM+ and SPOT XS Satellite Images were obtained in summer and winter seasons to analyse

Marine Ecological Distribution of Sedimentation and Temperature Profiles along with physically acquired biodiversity datasets of Flora, Fauna and Metal distribution. GIS based Data modelling was performed using Arc View 3.2 Spatial Analyst to develop the respective layer contour distribution of ecological parameters.
