The main research results are as follows: 1. Dynamic monitoring of oasification and desertification and its ecological and environmental effects. With aviation and space remote sensing data and land use survey data as information sources, in the GIS environment, according to approximately 5 years interval and 1: The spatial and temporal changes of oases in the Heihe River Basin and hexi River basin in the past 60 years (1960-2017) and 30 years (1986-2015) were detected by means of superposition analysis. The spatial and temporal changes of oases in the Heihe River Basin in the past 60 years (1960-2017) and hexi River Basin in the past 30 years (1986-2015) were detected by means of superposition analysis. Combining natural environment evolution and the social economy, identify the dominant factor of oasis development and desertification space-time process, according to their level of determine the strength and the influence level, using the concept and mathematical model reveals the driving mechanism, analyzed the cause of the oasis development, characteristics and existing problems, discusses the regulatory mechanism of oasis change. 2. Restoration of space-time evolution of ancient oases in historical period. Mainly USES the historical geography research methods, by historical philology, archaeology, remote sensing and GIS as the research method, the detailed field investigation and archaeological investigation, on the basis of the predecessors' achievements, the historical documents, historical sites, natural and human activities, such as archaeological evidence, combining with multi-source remote sensing image as the background, through the ancient oasis interpretation, The area and quantity of oases in Minqin basin and Heihe Basin were reconstructed quantitatively, the spatio-temporal process of ancient oasis development and desertification was revealed, the influencing factors of oasis development and desertification were identified, and the driving mechanism was analyzed. It is found that the development of the ancient oases in Hexi reached its peak in han Dynasty, Wei Jin Dynasty and Ming and Qing Dynasties, and the intervening period was relatively depressed. Climate provides a natural background for the cultivation of oases, but the changes of oases are mainly caused by the change of dynasties. 3. Dynamic monitoring of urban historical change and expansion. From the perspective of urban historical evolution, discusses the lanzhou city from ancient history to modern city historical changes and extension of dynamic, combined with historical data and map of lanzhou city expansion changes in quantitative research, established the time sequence in the evolution of the lanzhou city, analyzed the lanzhou city change during the period of history, and extended dynamic mechanism and their causes, explores the modern city 3 d modeling correlation analysis method, With the improvement of political status, Lanzhou city has been paid more and more attention and gradually developed from a military traffic town to an important commercial center city. 4. Land use/cover change and environmental effects in arid regions. In maowusu desert as the main body of the northwest agriculture and animal husbandry ecotone, established a system of monitoring and evaluation based on remote sensing and GIS technology, analyzed the change of land use/cover change background, causes and the water is hot, reveal form the basic process of desertification, analyzes the mechanism of land desertification and land use/cover change on the influence of surface water heat process, Deepen the understanding of the relevant laws. 5. Resource and environment monitoring and management. Using remote sensing, GIS, GPS and other modern technologies, remote sensing quantitative analysis, monitoring evaluation and early warning management of soil erosion, remote sensing model recognition and automatic classification, regional resources and environment geographic information system development. A set of advanced and practical techniques and methods are summarized from survey methods, data collection, information processing, image interpretation, pattern recognition, system design and program writing.
