ONGOING PROJECTS

Integrated Studies of 20 Major Wetlands of Assam For Fisheries Development

Background

The project Integrated Studies of 20 Major Wetlands of Assam, is sponsored by the Notrth Eastern Council, Govt. of India, Shillong. The project involves mapping of the waterspread area of each wetland through visual interpretation and Digital Image Processing of satellite images. Integration of map data and field data such as soil and water quality parameters, land use landcover, land tenure, physiography etc. will be done through application of Geographic Information System.

Objectives

To delineate the waterspread area and its seasonal variation in each wetland using IRS LISS III satellite data on 1:50,000    scale.

To identify and delineate aquatic and other vegetation in and around the wetlands and assign qualitative turbidity levels to    wetlands

To analyse the physical and chemical parameters of soil and water in each of the 20 wetlands

To integrate the maps and data through GIS

To generate a computerised database for the 20 major wetlands of Assam.

Activity

Preparation of project report is in progress.
