14 July 2003 Study on dynamic change of the oasis-desert ecotone using fractal theory
Author Affiliations +
The research is based on data derived from fieldwork that is interpreted using fractal theory. The present study relied on multi-time satellite remote sensing data for the main sources of information. With the aide of image analysis techniques, desertification of Qira county and changes in the oasis-desert ecotone are analyzed.. In addition, the function of fractal theory in highly quantitative research of oasis-desert ecotones is discussed.. We suggest that the model derived from the present study should serve as a reference in decision-making concerning regional development and construction in order to simplify existing research processes.
