Paper Abstract

Recently, "Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystem (GCTE)" and "Land-Use and Land-Cover Change (LUCC)" have become the core project and the important direction of the global change research.. The land cover is closely related to the climate and they mutually affect each other. The paper created Zhejiang land cover change map based on MODIS Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) products and climate change maps. A study of the relationship between the land cover change and the climate change was conducted on the maps. The conclusion was the land cover change has the relation with the local temperature change in the certain degree, does not have the relation with the precipitation change and the humidity change.
