Investigation of Aksehir and Eber Lakes (SW Turkey) Coastline Change with Multitemporal Satellite Images
Detection and analyses of coastline changes are an important task in environmental monitoring. Several factors such as geology, hydrology, climate impact, environmental problems etc. play an important role in this change. The main objective of this study is to determine coastline change in the Aksehir and Eber lakes (SW, Turkey) by using different remote sensing methods on the multitemporal satellite images. In present study, Landsat MSS (1975), Landsat TM (1987), Landsat ETM+ (2000) and ASTER (2006–2008) satellite images were used. In order to explain reasons of coastline change, geological, hydrogeological and hydrological investigations were carried out. Also, surface area and volume calculations were performed with the aid of bathymetric map which was digitized by using the Arc GIS 9 version software program. The obtained data show that precipitation, evaporation and surface flow are effective in the Aksehir and Eber coastline change. The Eber Lake was evaluated with level measurements due to aquatic plants covered surface of the lake. The coastline change of the Eber Lake is related to hydraulic factors. The Aksehir Lake volume and surface area have decreased 1.11 km3 and 257.95 km2, respectively from 1975 to 2006 years. Furthermore, the Lake Akşehir was dried up completely in 2008.
