Short summary
This paper explored the suitability of the Landsat OLI sensor for monitoring concentration and movement of suspended particles along a coastal landscape of Thiruvananthapuram. Suspended sediments moved north–south during pre-monsoon and south–north during post-monsoon seasons under the influence of monsoonal winds. It was found that the spatial variability of suspended sediments was indirectly proportional to the depth and distance from the shoreline and directly proportional to wave action.
