The data from URS-1A satellite have been found very useful in the study of coastal zone and marine resources. Important applications are in mapping of the tidal wetlands, coastal land forms, suspended sediments, understanding the processes of estuarine dynamics, shoreline changes, generation of coastal currents, internal waves, degradation/improvement in mangroves and coral reefs. Significant results of these studies are outlined in the paper.
