Paper Abstract

The problem of efficient use of multi-temporal remotely sensed data for land-cover and landscape pattern dynamics has already considerable attention in landscape ecology and some other disciplines. This research develops and tests a methodological approach to monitor and analysis landscape dynamics change of Yongding river watershed (Mentougou section) as study area from 1988 to 2005, The result shows that the OIF is the best method of optimal bands selection in Landsat TM remote sensing data, TM3, 4, 5 bands is optimal band combination ;the Mentougou Reach of Yongding river watershed landscape changed significantly in terms of its composition over the period 1988-2005, The total landscape patches of study area in 2005 are more those in 1988,2001, Mean patch size(MPS)decreased sharply, Number of patches(NP) increased sharply, The landscape pattern takes on the fragmentation trends under the effect on the human activity. The forest (woodland and shrubland)are the main landscape matrix. with a significant decrease in croplands and a increase in built-up (residential, urban land) and industrial minerals mining land(coal, open-pit)over the 17 years, And the underlying socio-economic and other drivers of landscape change in study area are discussed.
