Monitoring and analysis of the recent land cover/land use changes through the integration of remote sensing and GIS to detect change in land use and land cover pattern by providing more reliable direct quantitative information also could provide base information for documenting water salinity, soil change and expansion in surface lakes. Therefore in the present study an attempt is made on Siwa Oasis to bring out the quantitative information through field campaigns and the study of satellite imageries those freely available at National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences (NARSS) and Global Land Cover Forecasting (GLCF) site. The results obtained through this study using imageries of 1987, 2000 and 2014 of Siwa Oasis are presented.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
