World's beaches eroding in protected marine areas: NASA 19.7.2018 DNA: Top News
The world's sandy shorelines are declining in protected marine areas which could threaten plant and animal species and cultural heritage sites, a global survey of beaches with satellite data from NASA and the US Geological Survey shows. Worldwide, the study found that 24 per cent of Earth's sandy beaches are eroding, a coastline distance of almost 50,000 miles, NASA said in a statement. The view from space provided a team of scientists and engineers from the Netherlands with a more accurate picture of just how much of Earth's shorelines are beaches. They found that about a third (31 per cent) of all ice-free shorelines are sandy or gravelly. Africa has the highest proportion of sandy beaches (66 per cent) and Europe has the lowest (22 per cent). The team used machine learning to "teach" its classification software to accurately identify sandy beaches from images taken by Landsat satellites from NASA and the US Geological Survey. This allowed them to quickly and automatically examine 30 years of data and ...

Gujarat: ISRO maps out 12 eco-corridors to link sloth bear habitats 19.7.2018 DNA: India
A study on sloth bears in Gujarat, funded by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), has identified 12 ecological corridors that will help connect fragmented habitats of the animal in the state. These corridors connect five major protected areas and unprotected bear habitats. ISRO funded the project and this is the first instance of application of space science geospatial technology being used for wildlife conservation in Gujarat. The corridors, if developed, can lead to the bears moving towards villages, which can be a potential conflict point. Potential conflict zones have also been identified, so that the forest department can take preemptive action. The project was jointly carried out by a team of Nishith Dharaiya, a member of the state wildlife board and associate professor of Hemchandracharya North Gujarat University, and CP Singh, a scientist with Space Application Centre. The research, titled 'Habitat Suitability & Corridor Analysis for Sloth Bear in Gujarat using Remote Sensing and ...
