Abstract
Coastal zone is the interaction area between the ocean and the land, and it is one of the most important residential areas of human. Coastal area management and planning is necessary in utilizing coastal space and resources. Coastal zone changed rapidly in recent decades in Tangshan, China. In this research, a total of 11 Landsat images were selected for studying the coastal change in Tangshan during the last 35 years. Results showed that the coastline length increased by 114.05 km, while land area increased by 449.76km2 from 1975 to 2010. The main period of coastal increasing in Tangshan occurred during 2005–2010, and the primary area changes happened in Caofeidian District and Jingtang Port. The main reason of the rapid coastal changes in Tangshan was the human activities of industrial and commercial district construction and harbor construction.
