    Based on remote sensing images in 1988,1993 and 1998,measurement of Mashans land use was conducted through methods of maximum like and probabilistic relaxation,which revealed the city's spatial process in the past 11 years.The conclusions may be distinguished as follows:(a) The results of the detection are reasonable and it is feasible to calculate the transfer matrix of land use to show spatial pattern of land use distribution as unit of image pixel.(b) The main characteristics of Mashans land use change are the obvious reduction of the existing farm land and forest land,and subsequent rapid increase in urban land along Guzhu road and tourism/vocationing district along ring road which are the main developing axes during the recent 10 years.In 1988,agricultural production was the main human driving force that impacted Mashan landscape,but in 1998,urban development became the main one.The typical agricultural landscape in 1988 has been transformed into the urban fringe landscape in 1998.(c) Under the favorable policy formulated by the central and local governments,the main driving forces of land use change in Mashan are the rapid growth of population,foreign investment,fixed assets investment and development of the tertiary industry which was based on tourist industry.The driving forces will continue to affect land use in the future.

    ZHANG Hong
    2001, 16 (3):  216-220.  doi: 10.11849/zrzyxb.2001.03.004
    Abstract ( )   PDF (206KB) ( )   Save
    Responses of NPP of salinized meadow in hyper arid area to global change were predicted using the NPP model,developed by the author to simulate the NPP of natural salinized meadow in northern part of Tarim Basin.The result shows that the NPP of salinized meadow in hyper arid area is the function of underground water table(UWT) and the temperature in given soil conditions.The NPP of salinized meadow decreased with increase of underground water table.Responses of NPP to change of UWT and temperature increase resulting from global change vary with different UWT of salinized meadow in hyper arid area.The impacts of global change to NPP of salinized meadow,therefore,depend on differing UWT of salinized meadow.It is extrapolated that responses of NPP of salinized meadow to global change are more sensitive with greater UWT than those with shallower UWT.

    Risk analysis theory mainly refers to use scientific methods to reduce losses resulting from all kinds of uncertainties to the minimum through differentiation, estimation and disposal. Based on the theory, this article discusses the risk problems in grain yield. Given a grain yield sequence, firstly we decompose it into two main parts according to different factors that affect yield. Secondly we translate the two parts into a ratio sequence, through which we could get rid of the influence of dimension as well as productivity, and the sequence reflects the information of fluctuation of grain yield during recent years. In addition, we form a function to simulate the rate sequence and subsequently calculate the probability of a cerain risk level of the sequence using the method of integral. This kind of information conduces to disaster management as well as formulation of proper policies in disaster reduction.

    A combined model was established for simulating canopy photosynthesis based on the data observed with portable Licor 6200 photosyntometer. The architecture of crop canopy was fully considered in the model,and the model can simulate instantaneous photosynthesis.Results of the validation of the model by the observation data measured with GHX 305 CO2 analyzer showed that the model can simulate photosynthesis rate of crops in field fairly well.Results of the simulation of the totals of daily CO2 assimilation with the model showed that greater deviations existed in the basic parameters of FAO productivity model.The basic parameters in FAO productivity model were reconstructed in this paper,which will provide theoretical basis for estimating crop productivity more accurately.

    In recent years,eastern China has made great progress in economy. But with its rapid development,man land conflicts have become more and more serious. This paper,based on the review land carrying capacity,constructs a set of indicator system for comprehensive evaluation of regional land carrying capacity that can be adapted to eastern China. More over,by the use of a certain mathematical method,we can divide this region into three types according to the carrying capacity: the lower level carrying capacity subregion;the mid level carrying capacity subregion;and the higher level carrying capacity subregion. All these types stand for three steps of succession to the land carrying capacity,that is,from the harmonious step at lower level,imbalance step at middle level to the harmonious step of the advanced system.

    HE Chun yang, CHEN Jin, CHEN Yun hao, SHI Pei jun
    2001, 16 (3):  255-262.  doi: 10.11849/zrzyxb.2001.03.010

    In the current land use/cover change detection,post classification is often used for its little limitation to radiometric correction.However,as the error in the individual date classification map will also be present in the final change detection map and usually causing the fault of the change detection,a new change detection method combining Change Vector Analysis (CVA) and Post classification is thus given in this paper.From the result of the case study in Haidian District of Beijing,one can see that the error in post classification was reduced greatly and the relatively reliable land use/cover change information was also obtained,although the shortcoming of error accumulation can not be solved entirely.

    The land use changes in Anshun City,Guizhou Province from 1987 to 1995 were detected by using direct classification of stacked multitemporal TM images. Compared with other methods,such as postclassification comparison and pixel to pixel comparison methods,the change detection algorithm used herein can not only bypass the illogical error,but also obtain the “from to” information directly.The results showed the difference or ratio bands had poor classification accuracy(overall accuracy equal approximately to 30%~40%),while those bands could well inherited the original ones achieved better accuracy(overall accuracy>70%).In addition,the different radiometric rectification methods could affect the accuracy of change detection to a large degree,the preliminary research indicated that the dark set bright set method might improve the accuracy by 16.6% in comparison with the histogram algorithm.Also,our results indicated that the study area had experienced some notable land use changes during 8 years,such as urban expansion,cultivated land encroachment and spatial change of vegetable land.
