Land cover is defined as the layer of soils and biomass, including natural vegetation, crops and human structures that cover the land surface. Land use refers to the purposes for which humans exploit the land-cover Fresco, Land-cover change is the complete replacement of one cover type by another, while land-use changes also include the modification of land-cover types, e.

Land use change modelling: current practice and research priorities

This was done by downloading and processing landsat images of , , , and Methods employed were, data identification and acquisition, image processing, validation and presentation. There were six classifications analysed which were; bare areas, bushlands, farmlands, forest, grasslands and waterbodies. The results showed an increase in the classes of water bodies, farmlands and bare areas by The results also showed a decrease in the land use land cover classes categories of forest, bushlands and grassland by Therefore, in conclusion, there were land use and land cover changes in the study area over the year period between and as illustrated by results that showed that farmlands classification increased by more than one and half times while forest cover was reduced by about a half. Land cover refers to the physical and biological cover over the land surface, including; vegetation, bare soil, water and artificial structures.

Land-cover and land-use changes are major components of national and international global change research programs and are topics of considerable societal relevance. Land cover—the assemblage of vegetation, exposed soil, rock, or water that occupies the land surface —and land use are significant agents of global change, with important influences on biogeochemical cycles, hydrology, and climate. Environmental change includes both anthropogenic change, caused, for example, by demographic or macroeconomic trends, and interannual, decadal, and centennial climatic trends. Today, land-related climate-change research programs are focusing on determining the impact of land-cover and land-use change on biogeochemical cycling, on coupling land processes into global and regional climate models, and on developing an understanding of the processes that cause change Janetos et al.

Land use change models are tools to support the analysis of the causes and consequences of land use dynamics. Scenario analysis with land use models can support land use planning and policy. Numerous land use models are available, developed from different disciplinary backgrounds. This paper reviews current models to identify priority issues for future land use change modelling research. This discussion is based on six concepts important to land use modelling: 1 Level of analysis; 2 Cross-scale dynamics; 3 Driving forces; 4 Spatial interaction and neighbourhood effects; 5 Temporal dynamics; and 6 Level of integration.

Methodology for Multi-Scale Land-Use Change Modelling: Concepts and Challenges

Подними, говорю. Беккер терял терпение. А ведь он мог быть сейчас в Смоки-Маунтинс, со Сьюзан.

Нуматака подавил смешок.

 - Разве мы не знаем, что в хиросимской бомбе был другой изотоп урана. Все вокруг недоуменно переглянулись. Соши лихорадочно прогоняла текст на мониторе в обратном направлений и наконец нашла то, что искала. - Да.

Раздался сигнал, после которого надо было оставить сообщение. - Привет, это Дэвид.  - Он замолчал, не зная, что сказать. Беккер терпеть не мог говорить с автоответчиком: только задумаешься, а тот уже отключился.  - Прости, не мог позвонить раньше, - успел сказать .

Хейл не мог поверить, что Стратмор согласился упустить такую возможность: ведь черный ход был величайшим шансом в его жизни. Хейлом овладела паника: повсюду, куда бы он ни посмотрел, ему мерещился ствол беретты Стратмора. Он шарахался из стороны в сторону, не выпуская Сьюзан из рук, стараясь не дать Стратмору возможности выстрелить. Движимый страхом, он поволок Сьюзан к лестнице.

Глаза Сьюзан сузились. Она терпеть не могла, когда он называл ее Сью. Вообще-то она ничего не имела против этого имени, но Хейл был единственным, кто его использовал, и это было ей неприятно.

    Classified images together with soil features, slope and rainfall data were used to identify potential risk areas of soil erosion.
