Paper Abstract

This paper analyzed land use change in Bashang area of Hebei province, with 1992 and 2002 TM (ETM). Based on GIS and statistical methods, the intensity, state index of land use change and transfer matrix were used to study spatio-temporal land use change in the region. The results showed that the area of arable land decreased greatly, also the area of wetland decreased. The other way round, the area of grassland, forest land and building land increased. As a whole, the intensity of forest land change was higher, but others were lower. From the transfer matrix, most of the arable land changed into grassland and forest land, some to building land. The grassland and forest land was mainly transferred from unused land, except for arable land. The building land mostly came from arable land. The wetland was used for grass and forest area. It was showed that the eco-environment degraded, and the land use change was an important driving force of eco-environment change in the study area. Unfeasible land use pattern and land reclamation by human beings resulted in soil loss and sandy land increase.
