India: The latest National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) survey in India has revealed that the famous city of Hyderabad has grown in the last three decades at the cost of 375 lakes going extinct.
The researchers have used remote sensing data obtained from the National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA). Researchers analysed the satellite data and verified it by the visiting sites. The study titled ”Mapping of Urban Lakes in HUDA”, revealed how 268 vanished between 2002 and 2012. Today, the city is left with only 531 lakes as compared to the 906 it had in 1982.
