Paper Abstract

The issues of urbanization and Land Use / Cover Change (LUCC) are both hot topics in the global change research which are now bound by human survival and development. This article takes the Shandong Jinan City as case study, and analyzing the impact of LUCC on land surface temperature and radiation during the urbanization advancement. This paper uses two periods of multi-temporal Landsat TM/ETM image data, and combining plenty of resources and choosing feasible classification system, and integrating remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) for detecting land cover change. We obtain the Land Use / Cover (LUC) maps of Jinan by visual interpretation and the LUC transfer matrix through GIS technique. And then we analyze the causes of LUCC. Retrieve out the land surface temperature and the land surface radiation by using single Landsat TM/ETM 6 thermal infrared data and weather data. We obtain the surface temperature and radiation distribution maps. Considering the transform of LUC, we analyze their impacts on land surface temperature and radiation in the region. Analyzing and describing the space pattern and time change of the impacts of land use and urbanization on land surface temperature and radiation during the past 6 years in Jinan. And provide a foundation to the researches of urbanization process mechanism and environment protection.
