HEMS awarded research grant to Ms. Swati Suman, a researcher from Institute of Environment and Sustainable Development, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. She will be working on the research project entitled ‘Fragmentation Analysis of Land Use/ Land Cover Change for Hydrological Modelling’. Her research will be supervised by Dr. Prashant Kumar Srivastava, Assistant Professor at Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. Dr. Jay Krishna Thakur, research coordinator at HEMS will act as her research advisor. Her research objective are :

  1. Satellite image classification for estimating the LULC using the multi- temporal Landsat dataset.
  2. Mapping spatial temporal changes in LULC on a decadal basis.
  3. Fragmentation analysis of LULC change using modeling tools such as Fragstats on a ArcGIS platform
  4. Assessing the impact of LULC change on a hydrological system of a watershed.
