Abstract

This study explores the changes in the landmass bounded by the coast of India during 1975-2005 by using on-screen visual interpretation technique (with 100m resolution and 1:50,000 scale) from NASA Landsat Imagery in three different time periods viz. 1975, 1990, and 2005. The result indicated an overall expansion of 130 sq. km area of the landmass that surrounded by the Indian coast during 1975-2005 (74 sq. km during 1975-1990 and 56 sq. km during 1991-2005). These estimations are based on the preliminary analysis and may be estimated more accurately by reducing the scale and using further higher resolution images.
