This paper presents a case study of the Yellow River Delta, to trace land use and land cover changes during the past 20 years, with an emphasis on land quality changes. Three sets of data are used in this case study : remote sensing data derived from satellites images; crop yield data from statistics; and soil data collected by the researchers in the field. The AA. discuss how the land quality has been changing, and to what extent the changes are attributed to human activities. They suggest future directions of sustainable land use for the Delta region
