Abstract

The paper presents the results of a study on changes in the coastal line of the Yarki islands (North Baikal) using remote sensing data of the Earth. Vector shape files were generated from the automated classification of the multi-temporal Landsat data. The analysis suggests a systematic decrease in the Yarki’s sandbar area
