10. Estimation of sediment content in Ba river downstream using LANDSAT satellite image

Dũng Nguyễn Bá, Trường Đinh Xuân


Remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) have been applied widely to  support scientists in conducting research and assessment of natural resources and environment. The combination of remote sensing and GIS data provide reliable and continuously updated data sources for managers and researchers in many fields. There are several tools, softwares and algorithms to analyze information extracted from satellite image. The information from satellite images can be used in water resource study including vegetation cover, large-scale flooding events, rain forecast, population distribution, forest fire, landslide movements, sedimentation, especially information on water quality and sediment movements. This paper presents initial results from LANDSAT satellite image interpretation used to investigate the amount of sediment content in Ba river downstream area.
