STUDY OF MORPHOLOGICAL CHANGE OF THE KUSHIYARA AND MONU RIVERS BY REMOTE SENSING
【摘要】：The Kushiyara and Monu rivers are two of the major river systems in the northeast region of Bangladesh. Analyzing satellite images of the Kushiyara and Monu rivers between 1990 and 1997, it was found that significant changes occurred at five distinct locations; i.e., Ahmadpur, Monumukh, Raysrr, Kaprangibari and Telibil. The amount of change was measured as 168.34 ha by using a plani-meter. Transportation of sediment was the major contributing factor of morphological change. The total average sediment concentration of Kushiyara and Monu rivers was found to be 16889.6 ppm per year during the study period by applying the Engelund and Hansen equation approach. Protection work has been suggested at the vulnerable locations.
