    Land cover of the Earth is changing dramatically because of human activities. Information about changes is useful for management of natural resources. Rapid land cover changes have taken place in many coastal areas of Turkey over the last two decades due to urbanization and land degradation. In this paper, land cover change dynamics were investigated by the combined use of satellite remote sensing and geographical information systems. The main objective of the study was to determine land-cover transition rates among land cover types in coastal areas of Turkey.

    Using remote sensing and geographical information system (GIS), the detection of land cover/landuse (LC/LU) spaceies and monitoring changes in particular periods are made easily and economically. CORINE classification was developed in 1985 by countries of the Europeon Union to establish a good harmony especialy with LC/LU classification. This system contains three levels of classification. So far, LC/LU classification has not been fullfilled using large scale CORINE classification in Turkey,.

    This study aimed determining the effectiveness of active green space opportunities (parks, children's gardens, sport and playgrounds) in the Upper Northwest Urban Development Area of Adana. Existing active green spaces were obtained as green space values per capita and indexed at the neighborhood level. The effectiveness of active green space opportunities for each neighborhood were estimated by the distances between centers of neighborhoods and the threshold distance between any active green space and the furthest residential housing.

    Distiribution of erosion and its grade exited by climatic and topographic conditions was carried out depending on slope in Coruh watershed. Data necessary for determining of violence and grade of erosion having importance for relation between soil and plant were obtained from Erzurum province land resources map (1/100.000 scale) prepared by the General Direction of the Rural Work in 2000. The ArcGIS 9.1 sotware was used for digitalizing the map. It was determined that soils of the study area higly exposed to erosion and this situation is continue.
