Analysis of city centrality based on entropy weight TOPSIS and population mobility: A case study of cities in the Yangtze River Economic Belt
LUO Jing, CHEN Siyun, SUN Xuan, ZHU Yuanyuan, ZENG Juxin, and CHEN Guangping
Based on statistical data and population flow data for 2016, and using entropy weight TOPSIS and the obstacle degree model, the centrality of cities in the Yangtze River Economic Belt (YREB) together with the factors influencing centrality were measured. In addition, data for the population flow were used to analyze th

Spatiotemporal variations of cultivated land use efficiency in the Yangtze River Economic Belt based on carbon emission constraints
LUO Xiang, AO Xinhe, ZHANG Zuo, WAN Qing, and LIU Xingjian
In this study, the carbon emissions (CEs) from cultivated land (CL) were included as an undesirable output in the utilization efficiency of such land. A slack-based model was used to calculate the CL use efficiency (CLUE) for 11 provinces and cities in the Yangtze River Economic Belt (YREB) from 2007 to 2016, and then

Spatial pattern reconstruction of regional habitat quality based on the simulation of land use changes from 1975 to 2010
ZHANG Xueru, ZHOU Jie, LI Guoning, CHEN Chun, LI Mengmei, and LUO Jianmei
Reconstruction of the spatial pattern of regional habitat quality can revivify the ecological environment background at certain historical periods and provide scientific support for revealing the evolution of regional ecological environmental quality. In this study, we selected 10 driving factors of land use changes, i

Spatio-temporal differentiation of climate warming (1959-2016) in the middle Qinling Mountains of China
ZHAO Ting, BAI Hongying, YUAN Yuan, DENG Chenhui, QI Guizeng, and ZHAI Danping
Based on air temperature observation data from 32 meteorological stations, temperature changes in the middle Qinling Mountains from 1959 to 2016 were analysed with respect to the north-south, seasonal and altitude differences. Our research mainly showed the following results. The annual temperature (TA) rose approximat

Urban vacant land in growing urbanization: An international review
SONG Xiaoqing, WEN Mengmeng, SHEN Yajing, FENG Qi, XIANG Jingwei, ZHANG Weina, ZHAO Guosong, and WU Zhifeng
Urban growth and shrinkage constitute the overall pattern of growing urbanization across the globe. Studies on urban vacant land (UVL) are few, and have proved to be mainly rudimentary and subjective. This paper first presents the definition of UVL based on bibliometric analysis. Typology, morphology, proximate causes,
