Rivers meet the agricultural and energy needs of people and living things. In addition, it is the most important external factor and process in the shaping of the surface where we live. Turkey is a very rich country in terms of rivers and wetlands in general. Göksu River, which is located in the south of Turkey and is one of the important rivers of the region, has been selected as the study area. Göksu is a river flowing through the provinces of Antalya, Konya, Karaman and Mersin in Turkey with a length of 260 km and a basin area of approximately 10,000 km2. Göksu originates from the Middle Taurus Mountains in two arms. The southern branch originates from the Geyik Mountains, and the northern branch originates from the Haydar Mountains and merges within the borders of the Mut District. From its confluence, the river takes the name Göksu, and then it empties into the Mediterranean Sea in the south of Silifke District. This study aims to investigate the temporal changes of Göksu River by using remote sensing methods. In the study, the Normalized Difference Water Index (NDWI) was used for the extraction of water bodies. In addition, the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) was used to study the temporal changes of forest and agricultural areas along the river line.
