The dynamics and protection of geometric quantum discord (GQD) for a two-qutrit system under amplitude damping channel with finite temperature have been studied in detail. By using of a lower bound of GQD, numerical results show that the GQD dynamics suffering from amplitude damping channels is more robust against the decoherence at lower temperature. Moreover, by combining weak measurement with measurement reversal, we have also investigated the protecting of the GDQ for a two-qutrit system under decoherence. It is found that the measurement technique can effectively protect the GQD against decoherence at lower temperature, but fails to protect GQD at higher temperature of channel.
