Geo-Spatial Mapping of Land Use and Land Cover Changes in the Core and Periphery Area of Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, Rajasthan, India, 1975–2015

Abstract

In the near future, natural resources are very rapidly diminishing all over the globe. Which is very unhealthy for land ecosystem services. In the biodiversity, Tiger is an icon of healthy wildlife which is considered as a vital factor for maintaining Universal Food Chain System. This research paper is based on “Geo-Spatial Mapping of land use and land cover changes in the Core and Periphery Area of Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, Rajasthan, India, 1975-2015, it’s a micro level Study based on primary and secondary data through GIS mapping and consider as a Socio-Economic & Physical factors to inter-connect with Tiger habitats. Especially, core and periphery LULC have been obtained from the Multispectral images from ETM and ETM+ sensors of Landsat and LISS-III and AWiFS sensors of Resourcesat-satellites. This study examines the spatial and temporal patterns of LULC change along the boundary of Ranthambhore in the Rajasthan from 1975 to 2015. Tiger Landscape change within all ecological zones will be evaluated. The Landsat TM and ETM imagery will be used to produce LULC classification maps for both areas using a hybrid supervised/unsupervised methods. LULC changes are measured using landscape metrics and change maps created by post-classification through change detection. Using all the raster maps and the final change detection of the reserve will be done through spatial analysis using the raster calculator tool in ArcGIS and Erdas and MS Excel 13. The study comes out with land use and land cover change in core and periphery areas of the reserve. The research also describes Human Encroachment, Impact on human colonization, interfere with domestic animals, Interbreeding, and the Migration in core and periphery areas, finally, the situation would be alarming for biodiversity of tiger habitat due to the high pressure of anthropogenic activities.

Estimating Trends of Mean Monthly Ozone Emission in Urbanised Areas of Malaysia

Abstract

A 21 year (1992 – 2012) daily ozone emission data of a highly urbanised district in Malaysia was analysed with the aim of estimating the trend of ozone emission and relating this trend to the socio – economic and climatic characteristics of the area. Daily ozone emission dataset used in this study were obtained from the World Ozone and Ultraviolet Data Centre (WOUDC). The data were aggregated to obtain the mean monthly emission data. Descriptive and inferential statistical analyses were conducted to describe the datasets. Trend of the ozone emission was estimated with the use of MANN - KENDALL test. The magnitude of the trend was derived by the use of ordinary least-square fitting and the significance of trend was also tested with the use of MANN-KENDALL tool. The results of the statistical analysis indicated that the highest ozone emission occurred during the south western monsoon (May to August) period and these mean monthly ozone emission differed significantly over the study period. The trend analysis indicated a yearly decrease of between 0.069 ppt to 9.45 ppt for all the months except for the month of June when the predicted ozone concentration increased between 0.403 ppt and 0.414 ppt over 2020 to 2100. Furthermore, the results indicated that the ozone emission datasets yielded good estimates (predictive power of over 90%) with polynomial regression model. It could be concluded that the results of this study provided useful evidence for the importance of the climatic factors such as ambient air temperature, relative humidity on ozone formation. More so, this study could be useful in developing baseline information for assessing the health impact of ozone emission and for urban airshed modelling.
