Spatial-temporal arable and builtland use change in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Metropolitan Region: 1990-2005
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The paper investigates land use change at the county level in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Metropolitan Region. Unlike previous studies which merely divided the region according to the administrations, the paper identifies three land use patterns in terms of urban-rural resource flows: urban, peri-urban and periphery areas. Research findings show that the change of arable land and built land in the urban areas is faster than that in the peri-urban and periphery areas. Land use change rates in the period of 2000-2005 increased comparing with that in the period of 1990-2000. Regression analysis also shows the changes of driving factors to the land use change in the three patterns in the two research periods. The paper concludes through emphasizing the role of peri-urban areas as the urban-rural interface to coordinate land use in the urban areas and periphery areas in this region.
