Özet

Recently land use/land cover (LULC) changes are considered as one of the most important causes of global environmental change. For that reason, accurate and timely information for detecting and identifying LULC changes is important. This study was conducted in order to detect spatial and temporal changes of LULC for a period of 35 years (1975-2010) in Karaburun Peninsula by using Landsat MSS and Landsat TM images. The LULC types were classified according to CORINE Land Cover Nomenclature. In order to realise LULC change detection, Landsat 2 MSS (19.06.1975), Landsat 5 TM (1990) and Landsat 5 TM (2010) images were used for the study. Changes during the 35-years period were evaluated by a post-classification change detection technique.
