内容 研究概要:The development of desertification is intense in Sahel region at the rim of Sahara Desert, giving various influence on the agriculture, cattle grazing and forestry as well as the regional society. This study has been carried out by Japan Agricultural Land Development Agency (JALDA) as a part of its Desertification Control Measures Verification Survey, in which we (1) implemented the monitoring of desertification at the typical urban area and rural area in the Sahel region where the desertification is advancing and (2) discussed the possibility agricultural/grazing/forestry development at the village area at the vicinity of Niamey in Niger. In monitoring of desertification, we used the multitemporal data of artificial satellite LANDSAT and timeserially identified the development of desertification from the changes of vegetation and land form observed at urban area and village area. On the other hand, we discussed the possibility for agro/grazing/forestry develoment by assuming the productivity and supporting soil fertility from the soil classfication based on the LANDSAT TM data.
