dc.description.abstract Remote sensing data has been used for mapping coastal vegetation along the Goa Coast, India. The study envisages the use of digital image processing techniques for delineating geomorphic features and associated vegetation, including mangrove, along the central part of the Goa Coast which includes the Mandovi-Zuari estuaries complex. It is concluded from the study that (1) repetitive coverage and spatial resolution of space borne data permits us to locate recently deposited alluvium and change in vegetation (2) though constant biotic pressure is severely degrading the coastal vegetation, there are a few locations, where recent alluvium has deposited forming favourable grounds for growth of vegetation.
