Abstract: Source region of the Yangtze River is one of China’s most important ecological function regions and the main source of surface runoff here is ice-snow melt water. Along with the increasing global climate change and human activities, ice-covered areas and water resource distribution have changed significantly. In this paper, the spatial-temporal variation law of ice and snow area is acquired using long time series multi-scale satellite image. On this basis, characters and changes of the surface runoff rate and water level in this region are analyzed by combining the highland climate change and historical record of hydrological and meteorological data. Further, the influences of climate change on ice and snow area as well as on surface runoff distribution are also discussed. This study will be of great scientific significance for in-depth exploration and thorough understanding of water resource change in the source region of the Yangtze River under climate change.
