New regionalization scheme for helping select the proper vegetation typetop.jpg
Researchers Propose a New Regionalization Scheme for Effective Ecological Restoration on the Loess Plateau in China

  During vegetation restoration, guideline that can help to decide where to plant tree, grass or shrub, are very important to lead an effective ecological restoration. Taking the Loess Plateau of China as an example, Dr. CHEN Pengfei at Institu...

Researchers Develop an Intelligent Decision Support System for Sustainable Development of Mega-urban Agglomerations

  Mega-urban agglomeration usually means a cluster of cities, including a core megacity and at least three large cities, as the basic components in a specified area.
  At present, there are five mega-urban agglomerations in China, including Y...

  Recently, Dr. LI Haitao at the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, and Dr. BROWN Mark at University of Florida published an article entitled Emergy-based environmental accounting toward a sustainable Mongolia.
2000-year temperature reconstruction in China01.jpg
Warm Periods in the 20th Century are not Unprecedented during the Last 2000 Years

  A great deal of evidence relating to ancient climate variation is preserved in proxy data such as tree rings, lake sediments, ice cores, stalagmites, corals and historical documents, and these sources carry great significance in evaluating th...
Temperature reconstruction in southern China and significant warming intervals01.jpg
Scientists Reveal Two significant warming intervals in southern China since 1850

  Regular meteorological observations in most of China only started in the 1950s, meaning it is therefore necessary to reconstruct regional temperature series from high-resolution temperature proxies to compensate for the deficiency.
