Integrated Monitoring and Modeling of Watershed Geographic Processes
Developing key technologies and methodologies in integrated spaceborne-airborne-ground monitoring of physical-humane processes across spatial scales and watershed system modeling. Building integrated simulation platform of “Intelligent Watershed” for risk assessment, regulation and decision making.
Mechanisms and Effects of Watershed Geographic Processes Evolution
Clarifying the processes and driving mechanisms of watershed land use change and its effects on hydrology, water environment and ecological service function. Revealing the controlling mechanisms of climate change and key water conservancy project on watershed hydrology, river-lake relationship, water environment and wetland ecology.
Optimized Regulation and Systematic Management of Watershed Development
Developing the evaluation and estimation systems for spatio-temporal variations of resources and environment carrying capability, investigating patterns and mechanisms of regional division and cooperation, proposing scientific planning methodologies for spatial element allocation, optimizing strategies for watershed sustainable development and integrated management.
