Paper Abstract

A dynamic multi-temporal remote sensing analysis was applied to the riverbank migration since 50s from Nanjing to the mouth in the Yangtze River and a graphic database was developed. A dynamic analysis was also applied to the water depth using multi-temporal channel maps and a database of water depth of the Lower Yangtze River was also set up. The assessment of riverbank stability was made combined with researches of riverbed evolution, geology, geomorphology, and bank revetment projects based on GIS.
