Paper Abstract

The coastal zone is a place where land meets sea. It includes both coastal waters and adjacent shorelands areas that strongly influence each other. This area generally has various characteristics in any aspect of land or water with specific behaviors. Some of these behaviors have physical emergent that can be observed and monitored with remote sensing. The research has been done in northwest of Persian Gulf, Iran. The study area is consisted of four major estuaries and wide wetlands. Water level variation and efforts of great rivers e.g. Arvandrud, Bahmanshir and Hindijan strongly affects hydrodynamics and morphology of that area. Five series of Landsat remotely sensed images from acquisition period 1989 to 2002 have been used in this study. The research is based on an empirical approach. This approach was used to process multi-temporal images data with digital numbers combination with field measurements data. Several thematic maps have been generated from satellite images. The results of the study indicated that combination of field data and remotely sensed data provides a powerful tool for detecting environmental behaviors in coastal zones.
