The environmental status of the Keiskamma catchment area of South Africa's Eastern Cape province is of vital importance to the Keiskamma River and its associated estuary. Through the use of remote sensing and geographical information systems (GIS) studies, CSIR remote sensing specialists plan to model the land use and cover trends of this area as part of a PhD study. This, in turn, will inform land-use practices to ensure future sustainability.
