LAND USE/ LAND COVER CHANGE ANALYSIS IN NESHI WATERSHED, SOUTH-EAST BLUE NILE BASIN, ETHIOPIA.
Sisay Mekonnen* and Brook Abate (PhD)
Land cover changes are one of the contributing factors for the variability of ecologic regimes. Hence, good understandings on the trend of land cover changes are crucial for sustainable natural resources management. However, investigations on such trends are little in Ethiopia both at national and watershed scale. Therefore, this study was designed to deal with the change in land use/land cover pattern of Neshi watershed, South-East Blue Nile Basin, Ethiopia. The land use/ land cover change was identified from 1972, 1986 and 2005 multi spectral Landsat satellite images. The rate and extent of land use/ land cover change of the area was manipulated from the images by Geographic Information System and Remote Sensing techniques. From land use/ land cover change analysis, a decreasing trend was observed in forest and wetland coverage, while an increasing pattern for woodland and agricultural lands was observed.[Full Text Article]
