Modelling Natural Resources Degradation

The course aim to develop the knowledge of degradation rate and process of natural resources along with the conservation measures that are necessary. Time series analysis of satellite images, surface hydrology and erosion modeling will be focused for understanding land use change and determining other factors for natural resources degradation.

Whom is course relevant?

The course is relevant for a students, engineers and professionals working in related field.

What will be achieved?

On completion of this course, participants should be able to.

  • Use of GIS and Remote Sensing on analysis of natural resources degradation.
  • Understanding the roles of different stakeholders involved.
  • Capable to determine the best solution among others.
  • Case study with real information on land use change and erosion method (Nepal and India)
