THE IDENTIFICATION AND ANALYSIS OF HUMAN CAUSATION IN ATROCIOUS AND ABNORMAL NATURAL DISASTERS BY THE METHOD OF SATELLITE REMOTE SENSING

By Na Yang and Liangming Liu

Abstract

On the basis of climate change and natural disasters in China during the past ten years, and with the help of satellite remote sensing data (MODIS), we make experiments on the Heat Island Effect of Beijing, vegetation coverage in the Greater and Xiaoxing’anling Mountains, and heat distribution in the Yangtze River Basin. By making use of an integrative collection of variety information including population distribution, land coverage and utilization, super-scaled projects and so forth, we calculate Land Surface Temperature (LST) and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) in order to find clues to prove that human beings have the responsibility for causing atrocious and abnormal natural disasters. 1
