Paper Abstract

Based on the remote sensing data of Landsat TM and ETM+ (July 1980 and 2000), by using RS and GIS technology, the spatial and temporal change of land use was analyzed in Jiaodong Peninsula coastal zone and its different buffers, apart from the coastline 0-25 km, an interval of 1 km. The result indicated: (1) The coastline had remarkable influence on the land use. Comparing with other regions, arable land covered a relatively small proportion of the land area within 3 km; on the contrary, the area proportion of construction land was significantly high. (2) During 1980 to 2000, the changes of arable land area and the construction land area were most obvious in Jiaodong Peninsula coastal zone, of which, arable land area decreased by 34582 hm2, construction land area increased by 41224 hm2. (3) The closer to the coastline, the greater the intensity of land use conversion. (4) The main characteristic of land use changing was the conversion of arable land, water area and unused lands into construction land, among which 78.6% was converted from arable land.
