Name: SONG Xian-Fang

Current Appointment: Professor

Apr of 1993 - Mar of 1996, Ph.D. (Geography and Hydrology), University of Tsukuba, Japan
Sept of 1985 July of 1989, M.S. (Hydrogeology and Engineering Geology), Changchun College
of Geology;
Sept of 1981- July of 1984, B.E. (Hydrogeology and Engineering Geology),  Hebei College
of Geology.
Areas of Specialization:

Water cycle and water environment studies of watershed using environmental isotopes (D, 18O, 3H, 14C, et al.), hydrochemistry, hydrological experiments and remote sensing technology.

Together with other researchers of Key Laboratory of Water Cycle and Related Land Surface Processes, he has constructed experimental watersheds in North China, including Niujiazhuang Watershed in Taihang Mountainous Region, Chongling Waterhsed in Hebei Province and Dongtaigou Experimental Watershed in Beijing. Both high-dissolution spatio-temporal observation and systematic sampling for precipitation, surface water, soil water and groundwater were conducted in these experimental watersheds, to study hydrological cycle mechanism such as processes of precipitation infiltration, soil water consumption by evapotranspiration, runoff-generating and groundwater renewability in different scale watersheds under changing environments.
