Paper Title
A study on River Bank Erosion of Jamuna River using GIS and Remote Sensing Technology
  Imran Khan,  Muneer Ahammad,  Shiblu Sarker

Jamuna River is characterized by its extremely dynamic and unstable alluvial channels. This 240km long braided river is located in lowest reach of the Brahmaputra River in Bangladesh. The Brahmaputra River catchment supplies enormous quantities of sediment from the actively uplifting mountains in the Himalayas, its erosive foothills and the great alluvial deposits stored in the Assam Valley. Large discharge and heavy sediment load during floods causes the Jamuna River to be extremely unstable, because of which it consistently migrates laterally. This tendency of lateral channel migration, results in erosion of the river banks which causes severe problem to the people living in the floodplain of the river Jamuna. This particular study was carried out using the satellite imagery of the last decade as well as some old historical images to show the pattern and extent of channel migration and bank erosion of the Jamuna River. A comprehensive analysis was carried out in this study using the state of the art GIS technology to identify the vulnerable reaches of the river in respect of bank erosion.
