Based on the remote images in 2001 and 2010, the source and sink areas of urban heat island (UHI) in Shenyang City, Northeast China were determined by GIS technique. The effect of urban regional landscape pattern on UHI effect was assessed with land surface temperature (LST), area rate index (CI) of the source and sink areas and intensity index (LI) of heat(More)
A typical pepper-forest boundary was selected in the arid valley of Minjiang River upper reaches, and the moisture content in 0-15 cm soil layer was determined by time-domain reflectometry (TDR) during drought, after rain, and different seasons. Moving split-window techniques (MSWT) was employed to detect the depth of edge influence (DEI) on soil moisture(More)
The monthly, annual, and inter-decade variations of heat island effect in inner and outer suburbs of Shenyang and their relationships with urbanization were analyzed, based on the air temperature data from 1961 to 2008. It was indicated that the monthly and annual heat island effect was higher in inner suburb than in outer suburb, and decreased from inner(More)
Depth of edge influence of landscape boundary is an important component of landscape boundary research, and also, the hotspot of ecological research at home and abroad. This paper summarized the recent decades' research advances abroad in depth of edge influence, including quantitative methods, depth of edge influence on abiotic and biotic factors, and(More)
According to the recorded air temperature data and their continuity of each weather station, the location of each weather station, the numbers of and the distances among the weather stations, and the records on the weather stations migration, several weather stations in Liaoning Province were selected as the urban and rural representative stations to study(More)
In this paper, the accumulation and translocation of lead in soil-crop ecosystems were studied through fertilization with chemical fertilizer, manure and bio-fertilizer. The results showed that the soil total Pb content was decreased with soil depth. It was 11.14 and 9.37 mg x kg(-1) in 0-15 and 15-30 cm after harvest, respectively. Rice root absorbed lead(More)
By using moving split-window techniques (MSWT), this study estimated how far the edge effects penetrated the forest and agricultural fields in the arid valley of upper reaches of Minjiang River, southwestern China. Its aim was to provide general information on vegetation along edge to interior gradients in order to assist in interpretation and prediction of(More)
By using GIS and RS techniques, the edge effects of forest landscape in the upper reaches of Minjiang River, Sichuan Province of China were studied on landscape scale. The results showed that there was a distinct boundary between forestland and farmland, with the vegetation changed significantly. The biomass at forestland edge was lower than that in(More)
