River Bank Erosion Prediction

Riverbank erosion is a silent natural disaster. CEGIS has developed a unique tool for predicting the riverbank erosion one year ahead of the Jamuna, the Ganges & the Padma Rivers based on time-series dry season satellite images. This prediction is a probabilistic approach and CEGIS has been predicting the erosion vulnerable locations along the both banks of these rivers since 2004 for three different probabilities (30%, 50% & 70%). The overall accuracy of this tool ranges from 70% to 80% which can be considered as quite good considering the uncertainty in fluvial process.
