Abstract: Erosion of shoreline areas is one of the major sources of problems on the world, whose impact has had a devastating effect on coastal communities. The coastal region of India is undergoing various natural and Anthro -pogenic process activities which controls the accretion , erosion rates along the coastal area. Existing research suggests that the merged use of satellite imagery and mathematical techniques are the appropriate technique for coastal survey analysis. The study was conducted in the Cuddalore to Nagapattinam coastal area till kodiyakarai (Tamil Nadu), India ,Using satellite -data imagery from 2003 to 2017. This coastal stretch has been report high rate of erosion as well as Accretion. Coastal side erosion and long-term erosion, accretion rates were calculated using DSAS, to measure the rate of change of the shoreline. Analysis results shows erosion is rampant in Mayiladuthurai district, Tharangambadi – Karaikal (Puducherry Union Territory) especially from Tharangambadi beach to nagore beach.
