    Abstract

    Ulu Kinta catchment has experienced rapid changes in land use and land cover from 1991 to 2004. These changes have resulted in increased upland erosion and higher concentrations of suspended sediment within the catchment. The goal of this research was to investigate the application of integrated satellite remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques to assess land cover changes and the estimation of soil erosion in the water catchment. Kawasan tadahan Ulu Kinta telah mengalami perubahan yang ketara di dalam penggunaan tanah dan liputan tanah dari tahun 1991 hingga 2004. Perubahan ini telah meningkatkan hakisan tanah dan meninggikan kepekatan bahan asing yang terampai di dalam kawasan tadahan. Tujuan kajian ini adalah untuk mengkaji penggunaan bersama teknik penderiaan jauh satelit dan Sistem Maklumat Geografi (GIS) untuk menilai perubahan litupan bumi dan anggaran penghakisan tanah untuk kawasan tadahan air.
