Pune, India: The Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), Dehradun, has initiated a study of 14 major river basins in India. The study, under Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) geosphere biosphere programme, will determine the land use and land cover dynamics in these basins.

The project, titled, ‘Land use and land cover dynamics and impact of human dimension on Indian river basins’, aims at exploring the changes in river basins over the last 20 years, based on which, future land use and land cover scenario will be determined.
