    Remote sensing technology which is wide-viewed,speediness,low expenses and accurate compared with traditional investigation way is an ideal method for estimation of rice planting area.This paper,taking Fuzhou region which possesses characteristics of a typical hilly area as a demonstration,obtains the rice potential planting area by using land use map,digital elevation data and altitude data firstly,with the help of GIS,and then estimates the leaf area index(LAI)of rice potential planting area by using MODIS remote sensing data. The results of the analysis of the LAI variational curves of three different ground types,i.e.,town,forest and rice field,in Fuzhou district in 2005 indicated that the LAI variational curve of town is no-peak-value model,the LAI variational curve of forest is single-peak-value model,and the LAI variational curve of rice field is double-peak-value model.The characteristics of LAI sequence of the three different ground types are different apparently.This paper analyses the interannual characteristic change of LAI of rice potential planting area in Fuzhou region by using MODIS data during 2001-2005,and the result shows that the LAI based on MODIS data can reflect sensitively the information of rice growth,at the same time,can reflect the pattern that the early and late rice have been planted in Fuzhou region.The course of rice can be judged by using the whole LAI variational curve of rice,and the course of rice that is judged by LAI variational curve in Fuzhou region during 2001-2005 is very close to the data of observation. The estimation model of rice planting area has been established after the best MODIS images have been pciked in the rice growth season,and the subtract images that can reflect the most relative change of LAI in rice potential planting area have been counted.Research result shows that:the relative estimate error of the early and late rice planting area in hilly area using MODIS data is less than 13%,the average value of relative estimate error of the early rice planting area is 9.5%,the average value of relative estimate error of the late rice planting area is 4.1%,and the estimate precision of late rice is better than the early rice.

    Because of the exploitation and utilization of water resources,water resources consumption in the river basin has changed mainly from natural ecosystem to artificial oasis ecosystem.The control of human being on the water resources has become more and more important,and the effect of gates,weirs and dams become more significant.Eco-gate flood is a special path in Tarim River basin to control water resource and recover natural vegetation,and the running rules of eco-gates base on water distribution and transportation states in the area.This research chose Canmulik Eco-gate as an example and simulated the processes of water overflow within the field.Data of several aspects was used in the simulation,such as topographical data,land surface attribute data,meteorological data and hydrological data.Then,we calculated quantitative relations of flood volume;flood time and flood area by doing statistical analysis on the results of simulations.The model not only created a method to calculate and analyze the effect of ecological flood,but also simulated flow directions and spatial distribution of the water that poured from the eco-gate,and the results of flood simulation accord with observed data very well.In addition,the equations which reveal the rules of flood process and water distribution in the ecological zone of Canmulik have been calculated for giving some pivotal laws of eco-gate running,and can be used in making of water distribution plans.Combining hydrological methods with GIS is a new path to simulate the flood process in small scale,provide some basic knowledge to water resource management of the basin,and is also a new attempt to solve the conflict of society,economy and water resources.But the calibration of the model needs further researches.We are going to combine the observational data of flood processes with the results of RS image interpretation,and make the model more veracity.

    Urbanization and associated economic development of China have experienced a speedy increase in last decades.Consequently,the local and surrounding areas of large cities in North China are facing to the problem of water scarcity.The current research investigates the development of water resources in Shijiazhuang area during the last 70 years and the associated change of hydrological cycle through historical data analysis,field survey,and groundwater quality and isotopic analysis.This investigation shows the local groundwater of Shijiazhuang mainly accepts vertical recharge through river channels and the lateral recharge from the aquifers in mountainous areas.Urbanization,industrialization,and development of agriculture have largely altered the natural hydrological cycle in the past 70 years,especially the recharge and discharge structure of groundwater system,which could be balanced and self-regulated formerly.Continuous dry-up of rivers in the study area cuts off the major vertical recharge source of groundwater.Meanwhile,the extensive exploitation of groundwater due to municipal,industrial,and agricultural use makes the urban area sifting to a groundwater discharge region from the formerly recharge region.Moreover,the chemical composition of groundwater and its spatial distribution illustrate the change of water quality and regional hydrological environments as well as the drop of groundwater table.

    Nowadays,the production of crop straw is about 0.79 billion tons every year in China,among them about 0.32-0.4 billion tons can be used as energy by combusting them directly while the rest are thrown away to the field or set on fire directly.To popularize the technology of crop straw gasification could not only decrease the local atmospheric pollution due to setting them on fire optionally and their influence on the flying-off and landing of the plane,but also have great effects on changing the villages'visages and constructing socialistic new rural areas.The analyses show,during the course of resource's commercial development of crop straw gasification,both of the prominent driving forces and the restriction factors exist at the same time.Concretely,there are three main driving forces:the farmers' needs on the high-grade energies(e.g.crop straw fuel gas)are the base to develop the resource of crop straw gasification commercially;to be favorable to fathering the pollution and protecting the environment,to alleviate the supply pressure of the commercial energy nationally,so to lay the economic and social groundwork for future commercialization;and in the first stage,to value high and promote the commercial development of the resource of crop straw gasification by the government is a driving force and opportunity.At the same time,there are two restriction factors:as the price of crop straw fuel gas is on the low side and the huff is almost impossible,the quantity of farmers to use the fuel gas is not in the great scale,the utility of fuel gas is limited,the initial investment to set up the crop straw gasification station is relatively costly,all of them make the economic benefit is not so seductive;the limitation of the activity not controlled by the market is uncovered when the government supports it,the technology of crop straw gasification is still not mature and applied very much,and standardization system to check and accept the equipments and construction process of crop straw gasification is scarce furthermore.

    Land use patterns are governed by a broad variety of potential driving forces and constraint which act over a large range of scales.It has been recognized that the types and effects of land use drivers may vary with spatial scale and multi-scale investigation of land use patterns which is essential for fully understanding of its complexity.The main purpose of this paper was to perform a multi-scale analysis of land use patterns of Longhai City in Fujian province by means of statistical analysis on the basis of bio-geophysical,socio-economic and infrastructural conditions.Twenty-three variables were selected as the candidate land use drivers and 9 main land use types were considered.Land use data was derived from the 1∶10000 survey map,terrain data from the 1∶50000 DEM,accessibility data,i.e.distance to the nearest rural road,is derived from 1∶10000 distribution map of rural road,river,residential area,etc.But socio-economic data such as population census data was collected based on the administration areas.As a result,the spatial distribution of population data on cells was conducted based on the analysis of the relationship between population density and its influencing factors.The basic spatial organization in the analysis was a 100×100m geographical grid.Through aggregations of these cells,a total of 20 artificial aggregation levels were obtained.The independent of 9 main land use types,namely paddy field,dry land,garden plot,woodland,town land,agricultural residential area,industrial land,water body and unused land,were constructed at multiple scales respectively. The results showed that:(1)Land use models varied with aggregation level,indicating spatial scale effects.Independent variables explained more of the variance for the explanation of land use type at higher aggregation levels.Relationships obtained at a certain scale of analysis may not be directly applied at other scales.The variables included in the models and their relative importance also varied between land use types,different studying year of 1996 and 2000,respectively.(2)The distribution of paddy field was mainly restricted by slope,distance to the nearest rural road or city,aspect,agricultural population density whose influences increase with scale,elevation and distance to the nearest cover river whose influences occurs only in the medium or small aggregation levels.For garden plot,elevation,distance to the nearest coast or fresh water sea-route is the highest ranking variables and their contributions increase with aggregation levels.Slope,distance to the nearest town or line-river or city are the second ranking variables.For woodland,slope and distance to city or town are the most leading variables at almost all aggregation levels.Important variable also includes elevation at lower aggregation levels.Variables of distance to the nearest highroad or low road or residential areas contribute to the models to a certain extent and their contributions increase with aggregation levels.Industrial land is mainly related with distance to the nearest fresh water sea-route,total population density,distance to the nearest coast or road,slope and distance to the nearest city whose influence all increases with aggregation levels.Most land use types in Longhai City were restricted by topographic factors while topography changes little along with time.It is argued that these types of analyses can support the quantitative multi-scale understanding of land use,needed for the spatially explicit land use change models.

    It is very significant to study both landscape pattern and its structure of plant communities in vast wild freshwater wetlands in China which are few in number.Such a research promotes both protection and restoration of wetlands which are threatened by intensive human activities.By interpreting Multi-temporal TM images,we generate wetland classification information in the HNNR(Honghe National Nature Reserve)in Sanjiang Plain,Northeast China.Furthermore,both landscape pattern and its structure are analyzed at three levels of plant community,vegetation type and landscape with support of GIS technology.Our investigation demonstrates that meadow and shrub have been the basic landscape in the study area,while mire and meadow alike take the core position at vegetation type level as well as Ass.Calamagrostis angustifolia-sundry herbs as dominant plant communities.Our research indicates the spatial pattern of wetland landscape in HNNR as follows:meadow and shrubs are distributed in the wide place of the low gradient riverbank,mire exists in the riverway or low-lying depressions as narrow riparian landscape corridor,while island forests are distributed in the higher areas separately.Our research result also shows that 10% of typical mires area have lost during the last 7 years in the study area,indicating an obvious trend of degradation of mire wetlands,which attributed mainly to the irrigation activities of human beings on farms around HNNR.So the present management unit needs to be reformed into watershed objective constitution for efficient protection of natural resources as an urgent measurement in case of further degeneration.

    A region's ecological security pattern is the basis and guarantee of its sustainable development.In its establishment,we need to play an active role in controlling detrimental disturbance and exercising profitable disturbance,thus achieving coordination of the ecosystem and the socioeconomic system.In the rapidly developing regions,vigorous human activities bring great pressure to the ecosystem,and we need a harmonious ecological pattern,which can protect the stability of regional ecosystem and guarantee the regional sustainable development by horizontal linkage of the ecological space and the urban space.Taking the area along the Yangtze River in Anhui Province(the AYRAP)as an example,through an analysis of eco-sensitivity and ecological service importance,this article finds that the areas that need special ecological protection are the mountainous areas in the southern and western AYRAP,the mainstream of the Yangtze River and the wetland around Chao Lake.Through an analysis of the economic development potentiality,it also concludes that the regions taking priority in economic development are the urban areas of Hefei,Ma'anshan,Wuhu,Tongling,and Anqing,in the meantime,where the priority should be given to the economic development.In terms of the ecological features of the AYRAP,an ecological security pattern should be established,consisting of 3 ecological sources,7 ecological corridors and numerous ecological patches and wedges.The 3 ecological sources are the hilly land in western Anhui province,the hilly land in southern Anhui province and the lake district of central Anhui province,occupying an area of 22,000 km2,accounting for 35% of the total AYRAP.Six river(blue)ecological corridors should be constructed,consisting of major rivers and the greenbelts along them;1 road(green)ecological corridor should also be constructed,based on the greenbelts along the major roads.The 6 blue corridors are the Corridor of the Yangtze River,the Corridor of the Shuiyang River,the Corridor of the Qingyi River,the Corridor of the Qiupu River,the Corridor of the Wan River and the Corridor of the Yuxi River.The green corridor refers to the Hefei-Tongling-Huangshan Corridor.These corridors,about 50-100m in width,horizontally link the ecological sources and patches and the areas of intensive development of urban industries,forming a stabilized pattern of the ecological space and the urban space.

    Agricultural land plays an important multi-dimensional role on human being.It provides not only food and fiber,but also various non-market commodities with characteristics of externalities or public goods.For example,agricultural land provides a variety of important environmental and social services including climate benefits,wildlife habitat,waste treatment,recreational opportunities,and food security.However,traditional economists` attention is mostly drawn on the market value of agricultural production.And the non-market values of agricultural land resource usually are ignored.Because most of these services are public goods,the non-market values of agricultural land preservation cannot be directly obtained from the market.So estimating the whole values of agricultural land has become a focus of the field of resource and environmental economics.The whole value of agricultural land includes two parts of market value and non-market value.The market value of agricultural land is the net return from agricultural production.The non-market value originates from the utility that arises from people's willingness to pay to preserve agricultural land resource,which has emerged as the most important non-use or passive use value associated with environmental resources.It is very important to evaluate the total value of agricultural land resource.On the one hand,it can provide a scientific basis for rural-urban land conversion decision-making,and also decrease the risk of high quality agricultural land loss.On the other hand,evaluating the value of agricultural land can reinforce and perfect in the content of agricultural land grade,providing the important function for agricultural land management.Based on random sampling,the total value of different types of agricultural land was evaluated by income approach and contingent valuation method in Hubei province.It is showed that nowadays,the total non-market value of agricultural land is 2514.88 hundred million yuan,which including cultivated land,horticultural land,forest and wetland,almost equal to 39.86% of the GDP of Hubei province in 2004.Among that,the total value of cultivated land is 11398.77 hundred million yuan,and the proportion of non-market value in cultivated land resource value is 8.27%.The total values of horticultural land and wetlands` total value are 3715.27 and 10192.81 hundred million yuan in Hubei province,and their proportion of non-market value is 13.64% and 5.48%,respectively.The total non-market value of forests is 506.35 hundred million yuan,with a non-market value of almost 6407yuan per ha.Therefore,the non-market value is an important part of agricultural land resource value.The non-market value of different ecotypes of agricultural land is inversely correlated with the abundance of local agricultural land resources.The more abundant the agricultural land resource,the lower its proportion of non-market value in whole value,and the vice versa.

    Taking Hechi prefecture as an example,this paper utilized the Canonical Correspondence Analysis(CCA)method to study the correlation between the change of land-use and the level of the socio-economic development in Karst areas.The result showed that the CCA method could preferably be used in the study on the socio-economic driving forces of the land-use change.The result of the CCA order exhibited clearly the temporal and spatial change of the land-use under the restriction of socio-economic development in 11 counties in Hechi prefecture.This indicated that with the increase of socio-economic gross and the dramatic growth of population,the changes of dominant land-use types had significant differences between different counties in Hechi in resent 10 years.Under the restriction of the socio-economic development,the rapid economic development in both Yizhou city and Jinchengjiang district,characterized by fast expansion of the construction land in urban and rural areas in 10 years accounted for the development of urbanization based on the solid economy.The water areas increased quickly in Dahua,Bama and Donglan counties in 10 years,embodying the important guidance of the government decision.The construction and expansion of the Yantan hydro-electric station is the main and direct reason for the increase of the water areas in the three counties.The CCA showed that it was still in the development period of developing agriculture and constructing town at the cost of destroying forest.Both the increase of socio-economic gross and the drametic growth of population were the direct driving forces and the main factors.

    Enormous pressure on environment was given by the traditional linear living pattern.Recently,for improving the efficiency of using resources and achieving sustainable development,study on socio-economic metabolism has increasingly become the focus problem in science field.This paper discussed the international research about socio-economic metabolism in three parts.The research background of socio-economic metabolism was presented firstly.In this part,the differences among material flow,resources flow or metabolism were pointed out.Study on material flow focused on the character about material flowing process in specified region.However,it ignored the relationship among each part the process.Resources flow research emphasized efficiency of using resources by the analysis on internal alternative process.Whereas,metabolism put much attention on the material amount out and in socio-economic system,the environmental effect taken by the material.Then,the basic study on socio-economic metabolism was given.This part contained study on metabolism throughput in different levels and quantitative analysis about metabolism.The throughput was mainly divided into 3 levels,they were national,regional and familial.In the rough,there were four ways to analyse socio-economic metabolism.They were MFA(Material flow analysis),EFA(Energy flow analysis),HANPP(Human appropriation of net primary production)and ecological footprint.Thirdly,correlative researches of metabolism were pointed out,there were relations among metabolism and land use and land cover change(LUCC),environmental effect,and sustainable development.Lastly,some advices were put forward.Besides making the research ways perfectly,the main respect was to go deep into the analysis between metabolism and LUCC.Especially,study on socio-economic metabolism's driving function to LUCC should be intensified.And some researches on the feedback mechanism among policy,behavior and metabolism were urgently needed.Sensitive region in the ecosystem should be taken account of metabolism.Especially,environmental effect taken by metabolism should be intensified.Some factors related to socio-economic metabolism could be taken into account in the appraisal of sustainable development and recycling economy.

    Ecological assessment of sustainable development is one of the superiority fields of international ecological economy and researches on sustainable development.The approach of human appropriation of net primary production(HANPP)can assess the ecological sustainability of human ecological-economic systems through measuring how much the net primary production is appropriated by human beings,which is a newly while important research area.In this paper,we briefly introduced the basic concept,theories of human appropriation of net primary production and its approaches to measure sustainable development.Then to sum up all the latest researches on human appropriation of net primary production,the following four prime issues can be summarized for applying HANPP on ecological assessment of regional sustainable development,that is,the uncertainty of key factors,the threshold of sustainability,the restriction in data collection,and the imports and exports of biological production.
