Biosphere Reserve Monitoring
Biosphere monitoring under UNESCO-MAB (Man and Biosphere) is critical for verifying conservation efficacy.Long term satellite records help to clarify issues of conservation. Study requested by MoEnF aims at analysing Land use / land cover in four major biospheres. Study aims to assess temporal changes in land use dynamics (at 5 year interval, starting from date of notification) using IRS Dataset. Datasets correspond to 1990,1995,2000,2005 and 2010 periods.
