Abstract

The article presents preliminary results of the analysis of the current state of floodplain landscapes. The starting materials of the study are publicly available digital data sources. These include the digital terrain model SRTM 1 arc-second; digital soil map of Russia on a scale of 1: 2 500 000; Landsat 8 multi-channel satellite image. The basis of the study is remote methods of geographic information mapping: processing and classification of a digital elevation model; overlay operations with electronic layers (zonal statistics function); semi-automatic decoding of a satellite image. The study of floodplain landscapes covers three stages. The first is to study the geomorphological conditions of the territory. At this stage, it is necessary to compile a relief map of the considered section of the Don floodplain and analyze the altitude changes downstream of the river. The second stage includes a description of the soil cover and a change with a decrease in topography. Further, it is necessary to compile a soil map of the territory. The third and final stage includes deciphering the satellite image in a semi-automatic mode, by the method of image classification. The result is a land-use map that depicts forests, hayfields, arable land, and water bodies. The article concludes about changes in geomorphological and soil conditions in the direction downstream of the river on the active economic use of floodplain landscapes.
