Title of the application: INVESTIGATION OF SOUTH BULGARIAN COASTAL ZONE 1990 2000 LAND COVER CHANGES BASED ON CLC METHODOLOGY AND DATABASES
Domain of the application: Water management
Policy application: Water Directive
Mapping of South Bulgarian Black Sea coastal zone land cover changes is performed for
1990-2000 time period based on CORINE Land Cover methodology in the frame of CLC2000
- Bulgaria project. Two pairs of satellite images received by Landsat TM in 1990 and Landsat
ETM+ in 2000 are covering the area of interest. Revised CLC90 database is used to create
two new databases: CLC Changes 1990-2000 and CLC 2000. Ancillary data used include
digital topographic and thematic maps, georeferenced aerial photos and additional satellite
images. Field checking and inquiries are used during the verification phase. Results and
analysis are presented for the 12 km wide South Bulgarian Black Sea coastal zone. The total
area of changes for 1990-2000 is 3 121 ha (1.6% of the territory investigated).
Input Data – satellite images, revised CLC90 DB,
topographic maps (Scale 1:25 000, 1:100 000) and georeferenced aerial photos
CLC changes 1990-2000 for Burgas region – area of most intensive changes
