Abstract

Land use changes are results of interaction (over time and space) between humans and their
physical environment. Cities and urban landscapes reflect the social, economic, political,
environmental as well as technological processes in their changes as evident in their pattern and
structures. This study tests the use of morphological indices for monitoring landscapes in a heavily
modified landscape (urban). The study analyses the spatial and temporal changes in land use and land
cover pattern in the area adjoining the Thames Gateway and selected parts of Greater London, UK.
The investigation focuses on an examination of the temporal changes of various land use types as well
as their structural properties and distribution over this period.
