Abstract

The relationship between land cover and water quality such as suspended solid (SS) is explored in Tseng-Wen Reservoir watershed. Fine resolution satellite imagery offers the opportunities for land cover monitoring and assessment. The multiple satellite images are collected from 2001 to 2010 covering study area and land cover conditions are evaluated by Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). Results show that the temporal SS data can be explained by variation of average NDVI value. The study provides information for assessing the influences of land cover on variation of water quality.
