Extreme rain event and human impacts in a Western Ghats site

Abstract: The native forest vegetation possesses dynamic characteristics that interact with environmental and human forces. A case study conducted in the Khudremukh mining reclined area and Kali Tiger Reserve aims to investigate the human footprint and extreme rain-induced vegetation loss and recovery. The study will also cover insights from field visits regarding vegetation species and landscape-level information extractable from spaceborne data.
