Abstract: Multi spectral satellite images of the landsat by three sensitive Thematic Mapper (TM), Enhancement Thematic Mapper Pluse (ETM+) and Thermal Infrared Remote Sensor (TIRS) which cover Al-Hiwza marsh situated South-East of Iraq. In this study has been used different bands, especially, the 6th thermal spectral band for landsat 5, 7 and 10th thermal spectral band in Iandsat 8 for study the water cover in Al-Hiwza marsh that located within the provinces of Mesan and Basra. We purpose to study the cover case of the marsh, used satellite images discern the status of region through the period from 1986-1995, 2003 and 2017. From this study, we showing that cover the water of this marsh change in series case to decrease from 1986 until March 2003 and to increase from 2003-2017.
