Abstract:
Changes in Land use Land cover is a dynamic process taking place on the surface and it become a central component in current strategies in managing natural resources and monitoring environmental changes. Remote sensing data under GIS domain were utilized to evaluate the changes in land-use/land-cover (LU/LC) spanning a period of 1975 to 2016 along the Raidak-I River channel, Cooch Behar, West Bengal. In this paper, LANDSAT 2 MSS and LANDSAT 5 data for 1975 and 1996 and also LANDSAT 8 OLI 2016 have been used. Seven different types of LU/LC were categorized and out of them open forest was evident as the most important landuse/landcover practices followed by agriculture land in 1975 and the settlement in 2016. Significant reduction (0.29%) in open forest area to agriculture land and builtup area were observed. The change rate of the sandbar is -0.034% which indicates the land use extension due to agriculture and human constructions. It is believed that the present study will help to contribute towards sustainable land-use planning and management towards protection of extremely rich biodiversity of the North East India with mighty Brahmaputra River system.
