The characteristices of farmland site are complicated and versatile affected by many factors in urban fringe. Extract farmland and its corridor landscape types using high resolution remote sensing image is a superior way to detect farmland change. It is significant for farmland protection and delineation of basic farmland to analyze the relationship between farmland and its corridor landscape types. Taking Daxing district of Beijing as a case, object-oriented classification approach was adopted to extract farmland and other landscape types from SPOT5 remote sensing image in year of 2004 and 2007, including transport land, river, hydraulic construction land, irrigational land, farmland shelterbelt. The extracted road width was also evaluated. Finally, quantitative changes and spatial distribution changes of the 5 corridors during 4 years simply were analyzed through methods of corridor analysis of landscape ecology and GIS spatial analysis. The results showed that the classification accuracy and Kappa coefficient were more than 90% with visual interpretation, and the width of road was from 4 to 70 m; Farmland shelterbelt suffered the most obvious quantitative changes, and became scattered. Agricultural irrigational land distributed evenly. Secondary class road took greater changes, which mainly distributed in the northern study area affected greatly by urbanization and industrialization. Therefore, the object-oriented classification approach can take full advantage of class-related features, which fuses class site information at different levels. The spatial distribution of corridors and farmland shows a certain correlation, that is, the higher density of farmland shelterbelt and agricultural irrigational land, the smaller loss probability of farmland; the higher density of transport land, the higher loss probability of farmland.

Cultivated land, as an important agricultural resource, being quickly and accurately extracted using remote sensing is the key step for its protection and sustainable use. An approach was presented based on multiscale fractal signature and image threshold segment to cultivated land extraction from ETM+ remote sensing images. The blanket method used for computing fractal dimension of surface was modified to calculate fractal dimension of curves including the ″up″ and ″down″ fractal signatures at each scale based on the spectral curve of each pixel. The computed fractal signatures of the cultivated land and other land covers at corresponding scale were analyzed and compared; The results showed that cultivated land was enhanced through differencing between the third and fourth down fractal signature, and its spatial distribution was further extracted using image segmentation. The segmentation area accuracy and point positioning accuracy were as high as 91.0% and 71.8%, respectively. The point positioning accuracy of the rainfed cultivated land was relatively low, while irrigated cultivated land and vegetable land were up to 86.6%. The method developed in the study can effectively extract cultivated land and provide a reference for further related researches.

Urbanization has been an important component of land use and land cover change. Quantifying land use patterns and their changes is essential for monitoring and assessing the impact of urbanization. Data on existing and changing land use provide crucial clues for future development. Combining the application of remote sensing with geographic information systems (GIS) data, this study accomplishes (i) the creation of time-series land use maps in the core urban area of the city of Hangzhou, China; (ii) the examination of the land use cross-tabulation matrix to assess the transitions between land use types; and (iii) the introduction of a new asymmetric relation analysis method to explore the dependency relationship of different times in land use. The investigation was based on a 12-year time series dataset (1990-2002), compiled from fine-resolution satellite imagery and GIS-based maps. The results of the study showed that, first, there are strong associations between different stages (1990, 1996, and 2002) in land use development, and, secondly, the dependency between land use states was asymmetric in both stages of development. In addition, urbanization in Hangzhou has resulted in notable increases in the surface area of urban land and sharp decreases in the surface area of cropland. © 2011 International Association for Mathematical Geosciences.

China's National Petroleum Assessment 2007 has assessed 115 basins, and China's National Petroleum Assessment 2010 has again evaluated six basins among these basins. The assessment results show that China's undiscovered oil and gas recoverable resources are respectively 108.7 billion bbl of oil and 990.7 trillion cu ft of gas. Development of the Chinese economy has to face two challenges of energy supply and environmental protection. Gas resources are more concentrated than oil in China. Gas is mainly distributed in the three large-scale basins, Ordos, Tarim, and Sichuan. Undiscovered recoverable resources of these three basins account for 61.5% of the countrywide total. From 2011 to 2030, the mean annual gas reserves of the country will be, in 5-year intervals, 21.88 tcf, 22.24 tcf, 22.49 tcf, and 22.50 tcf. At the end of 2030, the cumulative proved gas reserves will attain 77.09 tcf and the proven degree of gas resources will be 42% in China.

China is the third largest permafrost country in the world with 2.15 × 106 km2 permafrost zones, which are mainly located in the Tibetan Plateau of western China and the Da Hinggan Mountains in northeastern China, where there are fairly good formation conditions and prospects for gas hydrate. The formation conditions and potential of gas hydrate in China's permafrost have been studied since the end of the 1990s. Five projects have been implemented by China Geological Survey, in which geological, geophysical and geochemical investigation, drilling, and remote sensing survey have been performed since 2002. Gas hydrate was discovered in the Qilian Mountain permafrost in 2008, which makes China to be one of the few countries that possess both marine and permafrost gas hydrates. However, there are four problems to be solved, i.e., relatively low exploration level, backward key technique and equipment, low-level basic research and lack of trial production test. Progress of the exploration and research and production test of gas hydrate in permafrost zones will be surely accelerated in China because of the increasing attention and support from Chinese government.

Researchers from China University of Petroleum and Ministry of Land and Resource have conducted a study to forecast the production level and oil reserves of 81 China land frontier basins. The study presents two sorts of forecasting methods, the exploration and development rate analog method and the graph analog method, to predict frontier basins' oil and gas reserves and production in the next 20 years. After 2010, with the increase of oil reserves from Class 2 basins, cumulative oil proved reserves of these 81 basins will attain 180.42 million tons from 2011 to 2015. After 2015, discovery speed will quicken and cumulative oil proved reserves of 5 years will gradually go up from 242.34 million tons in 2016-20 to 278.50 million tons in 2026-30. Annual gas proved reserves in the 81 land frontier basins, were forecast to attain 1.13 billion cu m at yearend 2010, when all gas reserves will be from Class 1 basins.

The China National Petroleum Assessment has evaluated coal-bed methane, oil shale, and oil sands resources in Chinese onshore basins. Resources of shale oil are 243.2 billion tons, and recoverable resources of shale oil are 12 billion tons in 25 evaluated basins. Nine basins, including Songliao, Ordos, and Lunpola contain more than 100 million tons of recoverable shale oil resources. Shale oil is not competitive with oil, natural gas, or coal, but it is explored and exploited in some countries. PetroChina has begun to examine oil sands in Jilin, Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, and Sichuan provinces and conducted separation experiments of oil sands, especially at Kelamayi in Xinjiang Province. China's resources of oil shale are 719.9 billion tons, recoverable resources of oil shale are 243,2 billion tons, resources of shale oil are 47.6 billion tons, and recoverable resources of shale oil are 16 billion tons.

According to the China National Petroleum Assessment (2003-07), there are 81 land frontier basins in China (including Qiangtang, Chuoqin, Hetao) where in-place and recoverable oil resources are 10.06 billion ton and 2.13 billion ton, 13.15% and 10.07% of the nationwide estimated resources, respectively. In-place and recoverable gas resources are 3.02 trillion cu m and 1.76 trillion cu m, 8.61% and 8.00% of the total resource in the nation. From 2011 to 2030, oil proved reserves were forecast to be 0.97 billion ton, oil production 0.05 billion ton, gas proved reserves 134 billion cu m, and gas production 10.2 billion cu m in these 81 basins. The future oil and gas reserves and production will come mainly from the basins of Class 1 and Class 2, where the conditions of petroleum geology, resources, and exploration and development are more favorable than those of Class 3 and Class 4. A discussion covers conventional petroleum resources; petroleum geology; resource assessment; synthetic evaluation; discovery and production forecast; and oil and forecast.
