The Niger delta with its gentle slope and low elevation is extremely sensitive to effects of climate change. Its adaptive capacity is the second lowest in terms of socio-economic development in Nigeria. Quantitative studies on developing measures for coastal planning and management have been limited by data availability. The use of satellite data can help bridge the data gap by providing ancillary data that can be used to quantify the effects of SLR in the Niger delta. This thesis uses satellite data as the main source for hydrodynamic modelling and GIS analysis to assess the impact of SLR on the Niger delta in an integrated way that will lead to practical recommendations for adaptation.
