Global swap experiences are more and more being thought of an important resource of knowledge to appreciate the Earth setting, particularly within the framework of human-induced weather swap and land use transformation. satellite tv for pc Earth looking at platforms offer a distinct software to watch these adjustments. whereas the variety of purposes and cutting edge thoughts is consistently expanding, this publication presents a precis of key case reports the place satellite tv for pc information provide severe details to appreciate the explanations and results of these environmental alterations, minimizing their damaging affects. This e-book could be of curiosity to researchers and practitioners within the box of distant sensing, geographical details, meteorology and environmental sciences. additionally scientists and graduate as much as post-graduate point scholars in environmental technological know-how will locate worthy info during this book.

V. 2010 17 18 Q. Zhou and B. 1 Introduction As a land surface process, landuse and land cover change (LUCC) emerged in researches on global environmental changes has been studied for several decades (Lambin et al. 2006). It was first recognized that land cover change modifies surfaceatmosphere energy exchanges and thus influences global climate (Charney and Stone 1975; Otterman 1974). No matter how the theory of butterfly effect will affect this world, scientists believe that this change can made an impact on global change via carbon cycle, water cycle and so on (Turner et al.

No matter how the theory of butterfly effect will affect this world, scientists believe that this change can made an impact on global change via carbon cycle, water cycle and so on (Turner et al. 1994; Woodwell et al. 1983). On the other hand, LUCC is not only a major part of global environmental change but also the cause of other changes at the same time.
