Desertification in the world today and China is the most serious environmental problems, one of its harmful natures and society has been deep into all aspects of the economy. This paper selects highlighted the problem of desertification in Mu Us Desert, as the study area, through the study area between the two 10-year deal with TM images, and the study area to classify the type of land, access to the desertification of the study area, the dynamic data. The results show that: remote sensing image processing can be better reflected in the fixed sandy land, semi-fixed and moving sand categories; desertification in Mu Us desert, characterized by the development of the area as a whole to reduce desertification mitigation.
