The affecting factors on gas geochemical characteristics extracted from hyper-spectral data in the Zhangjiakou-Bohai seismic zone were discussed. Temporal and spatial variations of total column CO and CH4 were analyzed based on the satellite hyper-spectral data. Temporally, the total column CO in the study area showed obviously seasonal variation, while CH4 didn't. Spatially, values of total column CO and CH4 in the southern part of the study area were higher than thoes in the northern part. Both total column CO and CH4 increased from western to eastern, and showed the largest changing rate over the piedmont fault zone at the junction of plain and mountains. The temporal variations of total CO and CH4 backgrounds could be attributed to the effects of climate and weather. The spatial variations of total CO and CH4 backgrounds may be controlled by the regional topography, geology, seismic activities, crustal thickness and so on. The results not only provide new scientific data for monitoring earthquake, but also have an important significance to the study of earthquake anomaly identification and segmentation seismic activity of fault zone.
