Use of Remote Sensing and GIS Data to Monitoring the Wadi’s Flow Change Through Al-Kharj Plain

Auther : Dr. Farhan H.S. Al-Jaeedi

     This paper describes the use of multitemporal remote sensing and ancillary data (e.g. Crarys map 1951 and topographical map 1.50.000) to allocate the original channels and to monitoring the impact of their initial surface modification on the Al-Kharj city and the northern villages during the period between 1950-2006. With the aid of GIS technique the allocation of the channels are more or less solved. Inside the plain the channels were diverted, modified, suppressed and liberated. Diverted channel was observed in Wadi Al-Kharj. Modified channel was detected in Wadi Hanifa with suppression of the right division towards the Al-Kharj project. Finally, extension of Nisah Wadi was clearly representing a liberated channel after removing the sand dunes which led to increase flood hazard.
