The coastal zone is characterized by the concentration of human activities, the change of environment, and the ecological environment is vulnerable to the disturbance of human and natural factors. Since the coastal zone is the terminus of the inland water system, contaminants accumulate in the landscape space and eventually converge along the water in the coastal zone. Under the premise that point source pollution is gradually controlled, the problem of non-point source pollution is becoming more and more serious with the development of human activities. The change of landscape pattern is an important aspect in the study of non-point source pollution, and the temporal and spatial complexity of the landscape pattern of coastal zone will affect the generation and transmission of non-point source pollution. With the help of remote sensing and GIS spatial analysis technology, this paper aims to study the influence of landscape pattern changes on the non-point source pollution of coastal zone by using the data of long-term landscape pattern and non-point source pollution monitoring. Based on the analysis of the differences of the non-point source pollution in different landscape patterns, the results provide a reference for optimizing the landscape pattern and improving the ecological environment quality of the coastal zone.
