Paper Abstract

In accordance with remote sensing geology research on TM and MSS images, this paper indicates that being the only source of fresh water for Loulan City, the ancient Konque river was only one flowing through the Loulan area at that time. Being formed two barrier lakes, the blocked river cut off the source of water to this city because the upper reach of the river happened landslides twice early or late. The ancient city finally was abandoned for lack of supplying water until disappearance.
