1. Marathe, Apurva. Reforesting Mumbai: an analysis of land-use and land-cover change using satellite remote sensing and GIS.

Degree: MS, Geography, 2008, University of Georgia

In this paper land-use land-cover change dynamics was investigated by the combined use of satellite remote sensing and geographical information systems (GIS). The objective of this paper was to determine transition among land-use land-cover types in Mumbai over a period of 28 years from 1973 to 2001, and to access the reasons for this change. Using a Landsat Multi Spectral Scanner (MSS), Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) from 1973, 1992 and 2001 respectively, the three images were classified into six land-use land-cover types: water, wetland, forest, bare land, built-up land and high density built-up land. An accuracy assessment was performed, transition matrices were created and maps were produced depicting the change in all the classes in the three years. The reasons for the change were also analyzed. It was seen that significant changes in land-use land-cover occurred within the area over the study period. As expected, the area showed significant increase in the built-up and high density built-up area. The results also showed change in the land-use land-cover from built-up area to forest area showing the effects of reforestation taking place in the city. The study demonstrates that the integration of remote sensing and GIS was an effective approach for analyzing the land-use land-cover change process. Advisors/Committee Members: Thomas Hodler.

2. Knight, Laura Lynn. Water quality and acoustic investigation of shortnose sturgeon habitat in the Savannah River.

Degree: PhD, Geography, 2009, University of Georgia

The Savannah River Estuary (SRE) has historically been challenged to meet water resource demands for multiple, sometimes opposing user groups, such as the global economic engine of the Savannah Port, environmental advocates and the commercial fishing interests within the same stretch of river. Resolution of this conflict is exacerbated when the SRE’s most imperiled fish, the endangered shortnose sturgeon (SNS) (Acipencer brevirostrum), lacks economic incentives for preservation. Unfortunately, shortnosed sturgeon have no residual commercial value from when they were over-fished to near extinction in the late 1960’s for their prized roe, placing them as the first listed species of the Endangered Species Act. Given the dwindling SNS numbers, recovery requires a plan to protect this species purely for holistic concerns over diminishing bio-diversity within the estuary. The solution, therefore, is necessarily a blend of science and policy to delineate the most threatened habitat where this species is known to exist. Primary shortnose sturgeon habitat in the SRE, however, is located within the busiest section of the port. This study investigates identified SNS habitat to delineate and draft protective recommendations for the most at risk portions of the lower SRE, plagued by both poor water quality (low DO, high temperature and salinity) and degraded physical habitat. Water quality sampling, mid-range side-scan sonar, high-frequency DIDSON sonar and stakeholder interviews were used to map the key areas of concern. These data reflect the need to investigate and preserve unique habitat features like the single remaining fish hole located in the freshwater-tidal interface. This fish hole provides protection for many species against salinity spikes and thermal stress within the SRE Middle River. The Georgia Port Authority and United States Army Corps of Engineers plan to expand the Kings Island Turning Basin (KITB) near this unique/rare habitat (the Middle River fish hole). Unmitigated, this expansion may alter river flows, destroying fish hole structural integrity or silting in the rich organic debris lining the bottom. This study employs ArcMap to indicate the most severely degraded habitat, potentially aiding in the prioritization of alternatives identified through the NEPA process of the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project.

3. Wellman, Michael. Animated and static cartography: comparing user ability and confidence in information acquisition.

Degree: MS, Geography, 2009, University of Georgia

Previous research has demonstrated that in some circumstances, animated maps are more effective than equivalent static maps, while in other situations the opposite is true. An experiment was conducted in which users were divided into three groups and shown either static maps, animated maps, or a mix of static and animated maps. Originally based on land use/land cover data, the maps were abstract, very complex, and nominally categorized, and they depicted the same areas at five successive points in time. Participants answered questions about the information depicted and rated their confidence in the answers they provided. Results suggest that animation decreases response accuracy and confidence and increases response time, though these effects are largely predicated on other factors.
