Investigating the trend of coastline changes in the port of Asalouyeh to Bandar Deir using RS and GIS techniques

Document Type : Research Article



The northern coast of the Persian Gulf has undergone severe morphological changes due to its oil and gas reserves and its connection with free waters more. it is essential to determine the coastline at different times. Landlord satellite data from 1996 to 2016 was used to survey the changes in the coastal area of Asalouyeh to the Bandar Deir, and to prepare a five class including vegetation, water, man-made, rangeland and no agriculture. For each user, the area of calculation and changes were revealed and compared with the obtained data. The statistical analyzes for the 20-year were supervised by maximum likelihood and were used to determine the changes in the comparison method after classification and the maximum probability algorithm. The results showed that the area of human land was built and no agriculture increased from 1996 to 2001, and the area of vegetation, water and rangelands decreased during the period from 1996 to 2016, which coincided with the development of the South Pars oil field, and overall, the largest increase in total use was with %393. Between 1996 and 2016, vegetation use decreased by a total of %47 and a large amount of vegetation was made into human use.
