The coastal ecosystem environment is exceedingly creative and dynamic monetarily as well as naturally and biologically as geographical and physical procedures, for example, disintegration, statement, flooding and ocean level varieties adjust the beach front land forms persistently. Any little changes in any piece of the coastal ecosystem zone straightforwardly influences the financial improvement and land-utilize administration of each package of landmass. All in all, coastal ecosystem zones are inclined to numerous characteristic perils, for example, beach front disintegration, storm surge, wave, waterfront flooding and typhoon, and so on. It is obvious that the worldwide mean ocean level ascent because of human incited dangerous atmospheric deviations, which has turned into a constant marvel amid the 21st century. It is likewise a principle risk to the seaside biological community. Coastal ecosystem zone in India expect its significance on account of high efficiency of its biological systems, convergence of populace, abuse of characteristic assets, release of waste emanating and city sewage, advancement of different ventures, expanding load on harbours, burst in recreational exercises or more all oil investigation exercises. The decimation and loss of land in waterfront zone because of ocean disintegration is an extreme issue, especially for a state like Odisha, which is confronting an unstable populace and mechanical development as of late. The coastal ecosystem frameworks along the state have been influenced by a few formative exercises, for example, ports, ventures, aquaculture cultivating and other human mediation as beach front barrier on past years and with the present pattern of advancement in the state, it is normal that the consumption of these waterfront biological system may happen in earlier too. Keeping the above verifiable and significance of the seaside biological community, the present examination tries to evaluate the land use and land cover changes during pre and post cyclone Phailin at southern part of Odisha coast.
