Telephone86 10 68786641
Work Experience30-year experience has been accumulated in numerical modeling and physical modeling for the fields of basin planning, river regulation, sediment problems in engineering projects, and comprehensive utilization of water/sediment resources. Over 70 research projects have been finished, such as developing a distributed model for soil erosion and sediment yield and several numerical models for 1D and 2D representations of river, reservoir and estuary sedimentation problems, resolving sedimentation problems and determining harnessing measures of more than 20 reservoirs.
