Assessment of Land Cover Changes in Lake Olbolosat Region of the Central Kenyan Highlands using Landsat Satellite Imagery Aided by Indigenous Knowledge

Assessment of Land Cover Changes in Lake Olbolosat Region of the Central Kenyan Highlands using Landsat Satellite Imagery Aided by Indigenous Knowledge

The region around Lake Olbolosat in the central Kenyan highlands has witnessed significant land-use changes, which are believed to be major cause of the dwindling Lake volumes. Very few studies have been carried out in the region due to limited observed in-situ data necessary for monitoring the land surface conditions. It is hence important that feasible, straightforward and cost-effective techniques are explored to asses the space and time variations with a view of providing the essential information for improved land and water management. This study investigated the land cover changes around Lake Olbolosat region using data obtained from Landsat satellite remote sensing.
