Investigation of the dynamics of landscapes on the basis of vegetation indication (Sample area along Kura River)


The dynamics of landscapes in the Kura River, inhabited by highly populated, were studied based on the change in the nature of the surface cover, especially the NDV index. During the study, vegetation was considered as a key indicator. The NDV index was compared with Landsat 5 and 8 satellite data for different years (2002, June 14 and 2019, June 9) and anthropogenic changes were determined. Acquired materials were processed in ArcGIS version 10.3 and maps showing the NDV index for the relevant periods were made by us. In the end, these maps were compared, the areal of the territories reflecting the performance of the index were compared, and the impact of anthropogenic factors on the dynamics of landscapes were analyzed. The study area covers 1,764 km2, extending 255 km along the Kur river. The area extends from Mingachevir reservoir to Carli village of Kurdamir district. The study area is divided into 5 sectors at a distance of 50 km for a clear view of the dynamics of landscapes.
