  • Dynamics of soil sealing and soil landscape patterns under rapid urbanization
  • , especially those of the highest quality, were the first victims. Soil landscapes, at the regional scale, became more fragmented and irregular, but less dominated, diverse and connected as urbanization intensified. Spatial regression uncovered the diverging
  • relationships between landscape metrics with urbanization indicators and measurement period. This study provides a practical methodological framework, by integrating remote sensing, geographical information systems, landscape metrics and spatial regression

  • (MOD13Q1). NDVI profiles were developed to measure vegetation dynamics and variation according to land cover types. Meteorological information for a 30 year time span from 1980 to 2009 was analyzed for their patterns. Furthermore, the data taken from
  • and evergreen forests. The highest productivity and biomass were observed in dry evergreen forests and the lowest in paddy fields. A vegetation greenness model was developed from correlations between NDVI and meteorological data using linear regression
  • . The model could be used to observe the change in vegetation greenness and dynamics affected by temperature and rainfall.

  • that accounts for spatial structure at multiple scales simultaneously. It is highlighted that the conventional regression modeling may have a reduced predictive power in reality, in cases where they possess a significant amount of SAC. This research demonstrates
  • that accounting for spatial structure allows a better understanding of dynamic soil hydrological processes occurring at different spatial scales.
