Paper Abstract

Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) images in 1988 and 2002 were used to quantify the land use and land cover changes (LUCC) in Wuhan area using supervised classification method with a new vegetation index based on universal pattern decomposition method (VIUPD). Land use dynamic index is also used to analyze the temporal character and internal rule of number and construction of land use/land cover change. It shows that the annual change ratio of different classification from 1988 to 2002 in Wuhan is -1.93% for river and lake, 4.86% for breed water, 2.74% for construction, 0.58% for evergreen, 3.35% for deciduous, -1.08% for one harvest in one year farm, -0.23% for multi-harvest in one year farm, 4.70% for other land use. And the formation and change mechanism of land use/land cover in Wuhan is also analyzed systematically. It is found that the flat terrain of Wuhan provided a wide space for land use expanding; the rapid increasing population accelerated the urbanization of the villages and towns nearby the center city zone; and the economic benefit of land use made the change of different land cover.
