  • Green space development project alleviated LST.
  • Environment Criticality Index (ECI) indicates the environmentally critical areas.
  • Environmentally critical areas are mainly concentrated in city center and along the main transport corridor.
  • Attention should be paid to reduce the environmental stress in urban planning.
An Investigation into Sea Level Rise in Sri Lankan Waters with Satellite Altimetry
Gunathilaka, M. D. E. K. *, Kannangara, W. S.

  • The computed sea level rise trends around Sri Lanka are around 2.5 to 3 mm per year.
  • The obtained trend of sea level rise from the altimetry data was found to be highly correlated with the tide gauge data in Colombo.
  • It is possible to use satellite altimetry successfully, to investigate the long term sea level trend studies, particularly in the absence of long term tide data.
