The simulation results under the three scenarios suggest that the sensible heat fluxwill increase in the northern part of Great Khingan Mountains and Lesser Khingan Mountains, where a lot of cultivated land will change into urban and built-up land, while it will increase most slightly in Liaohe Plain, Liaodong Peninsula and southern part of Changbai Mountains, where the cultivated land will mainly change into forests or grassland and the decreased albedo will substantially increase the evaporative flux.
By comparison, the sensible heat flux will show an increasing trend on the whole during 2010-2030, the simulation results under the three scenarios suggest that it will increase the most obviously in the northern part of Great Khingan Mountains and Lesser Khingan Mountains, where a lot of cultivated land will change into urban and built-up land, while it will increase most slightly in the regions where the cultivated land will mainly change into forests or grassland.
