Abstract: Krishna River is one of the longest rivers (1300 Km) in India characterised by frequent bank erosion leading to channel pattern modifications and shifting of bank line. This study is aimed toward quantifying the real bank erosion and deposition alongside of the Krishna River inside India in the course of 47 years (1970-2017). The supply of River Krishna is at Mahabaleshwar in Satara district, Maharashtra in west and meets in Bay of Bengal at Hamsaladeevi in Andhra Pradesh, on the east coast will be studied the usage of an incorporated technique of Remote sensing & Geographical statistics device (GIS). Vulnerability & Morphological changes will be identified the usage of 1970-2017 data of LANDSAT Multispectral Scanner (MSS), Thematic Mapper (TM), Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+), Operational Land Imager (OLI) and settlement identified using topographical maps. ArcGIS used for accurate information about current river channel motion and bank erosion.
