Land Degradation

The information on land degradation is needed for a variety of purposes like planning reclamation programs, rational land use planning, for bringing additional areas into cultivation and also to improve productivity levels in degraded lands.Synoptic coverage in narrow and discrete spectral bands provided by space borne sensors at regular interval enabled inventorying degraded land and monitoring their temporal behavior at operational level.

Land Degradation categories representing salt affected, water logging , wind erosion, water erosion regions are hosted on Bhuvan-Land Degradation
