Today advances in information systems, satellites imaging systems and improved software technologies have led to opportunities for a new level of information products from remote sensed data. The integration of these new products into existing response systems can provide a wide range of analysis tools and information products on the base of developed geographical information system (GIS). Using the higher resolution of space imagery and change detection analysis natural disaster awareness and damage assessment can be conducted rapidly and accurately. On the base of the developed database the use of the remote sensing methods and GIS technology provides resources and opportunities of prediction and reduction of natural risk due to the timely implementation of appropriate engineering and technological activities.

This paper describes results of study of island and channel forming processes on the Kura River and its crossing with linear system oil or gas pipeline. The aim of this study is to analyse the current condition of the pipeline and assess the potential threats to its integrity, identify the remediation measures for the Kura River crossing and ensure that the proposed methods allow to retain the integrity of the pipeline.
