Land use/cover changes and vulnerability to flooding in the Harts catchment, South Africa

Auteurs :
KABANDA, T.H.

Description :
The purpose of this study is to determine the hydrological impacts of land use/land cover change in the Harts catchment from 1990 to 2010 using an integration of remote sensing, GIS and statistical methods. The modifications of natural vegetation cover have led to modified runoff production and consequently to changing flow regimes in the Harts catchment. The coupling of surface observations, remote sensing and statistical analysis demonstrated the impacts of changes in land use/land cover on peak river discharge, hence flooding behaviour on the Harts catchment. - (AJC)
