    Land consolidation plays an important role in rational re arrangement of land resources, increasing profit of land and keeping dynamic balance of amount of cultivated land. Therefore, it has become the focus of society attention. The denotation of land consolidation is discussed in this paper. According to the differences between eastern, middle and western regions of China, the suggestions of land consolidation are put forward combined with national target. (1)In eastern region with high economic level, high land use ratio, and serious human land contradiction, more attention should be paid to agricultural land consolidation, aiming at improvement of land quality, management and benefit associated with the adjustment of agricultural structure. At the same time, non agricultural land consolidation can be gradually performed in order to mitigate pressure of construction land against cultivate land.(2)In middle region with medium economic level and land use ratio, it is necessary to convert the objectives of land consolidation concentration from increasing quantity of cultivated land to promoting its quality, based on keeping dynamic balance of cultivated land amount.(3)For western region associated with low land use ratio and low economic level, land consolidation should not only combine with return of cultivate land to woodland and grassland as well as control of water and desert to improve environments, but promote scientific and technological input to existing cultivated land to increase its output ratio. In addition, it is urgent to constitute, revise and improve laws and regulations related to land consolidation. In order to achieve multiple collective methods of land consolidation funds, it is helpful to explore establishment of land bank and corporations’ participation in land consolidation process.

    GIS Spatial Analysis is widely adopted in the research of land use change, especially in the spatial research of land use change. The data analyzed by GIS is mainly from original land use map and remote sensing. The model foundation includes spatio-temperal data model, attribute data model and principal model for acquiring land use characteristics. The data dealing process involves many functions of GIS, such as data conversion, edit function, spatial analysis, database operating, and statistic function. Taking Beijing area as an example, this paper illustrates GIS spatial analysis and its application in the research of land use change. There are some remarkable advantages using GIS in the land use change. It can integrate all land use information in one system, such as original land use maps, images, statistical data, and land attribute data. Furthermore, the spatial data can be analyzed in the system environment in order to produce information of regional land use change. At last, the spatial change, distribution can be printed with the mapping function of GIS. As the shortage of many analysis functions, the integration of GIS with user models is the main developing direction.

    A Discussion on the Effects of Deteriorated Environment Event on the Neolithic Culture of China, around 5 000 a BP
    ZHU Yan, CHEN Fa hu, ZHANG Jia wu, AN Cheng bang
    2001, 20 (2):  111-121.  doi: 10.11820/dlkxjz.2001.02.003

    A number of environmental records reveal that there was a rapid environmental deterioating event all over the world ca 5000 a BP. During this period, there was a movement of vegetations zone to south in the southern China, lower sea level along the coast in the southern and eastern China, and desertification in some sites of northern China. Meanwhile, there was a fargoing regradation or discontinuity of Neolithic culture in China. Furthermore, we have noticed some special clues which would help us to insure the result that deteriorated environment caused deteriorating of planting plants. For example, comparisons between early and late epochs of ca 5000 a BP. find that the sites number of the millet dud out declined in Yellow River drainage area; just only straw and shuck of paddy were discovered in the archaeological sites without rice in Yangtse River delta; the activities of fishing hunting were less, yet activities of feeding domestic animal were more all over China ca 5000 a BP. At the same time, there were also many records of the state of culture development consistent with the environmental changes all over the world. We propose that the degradation and discontinuity of Neolithic culture was caused by the deteriorated environmental conditions. It may be the environmental changes that affected the prehistoric culture. Vegetations are the nutrition resources of human. The past global changes (PAGES) have validated that climatic changes is at bottom of the changes of ecological system. The change of ecological system caused the changes of vegetations that affected the life of human directly, and hence, caused the changes of Neolithic culture. The role of the deteriorating environmental conditions affecting the Neolithic culture was in two folds. The first is that it boosted the development of Neolithic culture in some extents as the amplitude of environmental changes were small, because the environmental changes curtailed natural yield per unit area of nutrition resources and human were compelled to invent and improve techniques to raise per unit yield to fit their needs in food. The second is that it could bring about the discontinuity of Neolithic culture when the amplitude of environmental changes was so large that vegetations were destroyed entirely and human, losing their nutrition resources completely, had to migrate to find new nutrition resources. The amplitude of environmental changes was smaller in the southern China than that in the northern, ca 5000 a BP., so the Neolithic culture showed regradation in southern China and more discontinuity of Neolithic culture appeared in northern because the nutrition resources were dried up as large area of land was desertificated.

    As the core of disaster research, Reviews and evaluations on the works of orisk prediction, loss assessing, effects of disaster reduction and prevention are discussed in this paper. At present, international research in evaluation has made a certain progress. The work on it, however, needs to be enriched and perfected by improving the synthesis of multi subjects because of the universality of disaster evaluation. In this paper, author reviews and summarizes the evolution of disaster research in risk evaluation, loss evaluation, environment evaluation and profits evaluation of disaster prevent engineers, and discusses the connotation, content and study methods in these fields. Results show that focuses of present study in risk evaluation are put to natural attribute of disaster. Synthetic research in risk evaluation of disaster formative factors, volubility of disaster affected bodies advances slowly. Research in loss evaluation of disaster does not put enough attention to direct economy losses, indirect economy losses and other losses. Evaluation in disaster environment is a new task, and profit evaluation of disaster prevent engineer needs to be studied deeply on the basis of the principle and method of cost profit.

    The popularity of information technology has presented a opportunity for the development of digitalization of Chinese Historical Geography. For the reason of abundant historical documents, several series data about ancient population, climate, farmland, and agricultural productions have been accumulated, in addition to the eight volume of Historical Atlas of China, as alternative techniques, there are geographical information system, digital map making, graphic and image digital process, hypertext and multi media methods, suitable to promote the digitalization of historical geography. With recent practice in historical urban study, regional population research, and thematic map making with modern topographic maps, there is an idea that the GIS application suits for macro population database construction such as that of Han Dynasties and the digital map making suit for micro urban map compilation and presentation. It is believed that the main basement for the development of digitalization is the data mining or knowledge digging from the original historical archives resources.

    Following the extension of capturing method for geo spatial data, development of database updating technology, and application of geo spatial, Geo spatial data integration is found more and more necessary than ever before. Simply saying, geo spatial data integration is the processes in which geo spatial data captured from different sources and created with internal and external characteristic can be used within one uniform platform. The paper describes why geo spatial data can be integrated and how to integrate. In the first part of the paper, the authors focus on the theory foundations of geo spatial data integration, such as: (1) spatial and temporal uniform of geo processes and geo phenomena that are considered as the content of geo spatial represented. (2) Temporal and spatial continuity of geo processes and phenomena, accordingly, coming to the result that different part of one geo spatial feature can be joined together in an integrated dataset. (3) Hierarchy of geo processes and phenomena make possible the data generalization in data integration. (4) The similar cognition processes in different geo spatial data capturing processes make possible the comparison of same spatial feature in different dataset. (5) Based on geo spatial metadata, how to make the content and format of geo spatial knowable to data users. (6) The independence of contents of geo spatial data on it’s format. Based on the theory foundation, at the final part of the paper, the authors describe a general geo spatial data integration system which includes geo spatial metadata information system, geo information processing model, network based data user interface, distributed geo spatial database, and geo export knowledge system.

    Studies on character and variation of land cover/land use become more and more important in geographical and ecological research. Vegetation index and surface temperature are important parameters to describe characters of land covers. More useful information will be created by integrated analyses of these two kinds of data together, which will help us to find out main principles of the temporal and spatial variation of land cover/land use. The paper focused on physical connotation and ecological meaning of the vegetation index-surface temperature feature space, analyzed temporal variation of different type of land covers in this feature space using NOAA AVHRR remote sensing data, and did much site work on relationship between water index and winter wheat yield in the Huang Huaihai campagna. Following views have been set forth and tested based on these data: (1) Large area and long time serials land surface parameters could be retrieved from remote sensed information; (2) Different types of land covers have different characters in the vegetation index-surface temperature feature space; (3) Water index, derived from vegetation index and surface temperature, is turned out to be a good indicate of growing situation of crops.

    On the basis of discussing new schemes, location, and affected regions of west route water transfer project, the authors of this paper dealt with main environment impact on the water exportry region of west route water transfer project, including two aspects of natural environment and social environment, such as the influences on climate, animal and plant, water quality, reservoir area and its circumjacent geologic environment, public healthy etc, and the reservoir submerging influences on social economic. The main conclusions relate to 4 aspects: ① The influences on air temperature and precipitation of the reservoir and near dam sections are all Small. The precipitation contribute ration to some areas is 0 004~0 008 as a result of the reservoir section evaporation increase. Though the drought river valley is affected, the influence is slight. ② The influences on biology are mainly showed in the aspects of fishing section series composition and community structure. It would also cause the decrease in the amount of terraneous biology, but the biology species resources would not lessen. ③ It would lower the water quality of dam backward position, but the influence is limited because the population density is sparse and the pollution is not severe. ④ Submerging losing is small, emigration is small too. Accordingly, the present paper also provided some references for the study of west route water project’s influence on environment.
