Land use-land cover changes and river basin degradation: A case study of the Densu River in Ghana

Land use-land cover (LULC) changes over time trigger local climatic and geological changes. Recent earth tremors around the Densu River Basin (DRB) in Weija near Accra Ghana, provided the motivation for this study.
