Abstract
The wetlands are the transient ecosystem in nature and regarded as the kidneys of nature. But in due course of time most of the wetlands undergone drastic changes due to both natural and anthropogenic factors. Land use Land cover (LULC) of Hajo area for the year 2012 and spatio- temporal changes in wetland ecosystem for the year 1998, 2006, 2013, has been studied. The wetlands are initially identified and mapped from topographical maps of 1:50,000 scale. The spatio temporal change, identification and delineation and area of these wetlands etc are taken from satellite imageries. Spatio-temporal changes and landuse and land cover patterns of the wetlands in the study area are done by utilizing Erdas Imagine 9.3 software and ArcGis 9.3.1 software.
