Abstract

The spatial analysis of Tibetan Buddhist monastery is an underrepresented area of research on ecological environment in China. In this article, we use the 1987, 1997, 2007 remote sensing data, DEM and field survey material, and research on the characteristics of spatial distribution of 66 monasteries at Guo Luo Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture located in QingHai-Tibet plateau. And we analyze the differences of land use types and landscape pattern between monastery and settlement in 4km area. The results show that the monasteries mainly distribute in altitude between 4000~4500 m, and most monasteries of Guo Luo are located in steeper slope gradient and gentle slope gradient. Compared with the change of land use type of settlement, the change of land use type and landscape pattern of monastery is more stable than that of settlement.
